Ice Cores in Thousands of Years?

In Only Thousands of Years

by Ken Ham

Part 2


This is Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and Ark Encounter.


During my debate with Bill Nye “the Science Guy,” he said that ice cores—layers of snow and ice at the poles—take hundreds of thousands of years to form. Well, in our full-size Ark, we have an exhibit that shows this simply isn’t true!

During the Second World War a fleet of planes made a forced landing in Greenland. Over forty years later, a recovery team found the planes—buried under 260 feet of snow and ice!

It didn’t take long ages for the ice sheets to form. And Noah’s Flood formed the perfect conditions for a rapid Ice Age. These ice sheets formed from this Ice Age—and natural processes—ever since.

Ice cores don’t show an old earth! The earth is young, as the Bible says.
