Part 4



This is Ken Ham, and I am enjoying the gardens on the beautiful grounds right here at the Creation Museum.


The Bible provides us with a consistent history of the world. So far we have looked at the first three “C’s”: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe. God created a perfect world that was marred by sin. Mankind became so wicked that God destroyed the world with a global Flood. Only eight people survived on Noah’s Ark.

Well, this brings us to the fourth “C” of history—Confusion. After the Flood, God commanded mankind to spread around the earth. But they rebelled and stayed together. So God judged them by confusing their languages, forcing them to spread around the world.

Soon different people groups, with distinct traits, arose as groups were isolated.

But we are all one race, as genetics has confirmed.
