How Did We Get the Idea of Millions of Years?

This is Ken Ham, president of the apologetics ministry of Answers in Genesis.


The idea of millions of years didn’t come from studying rock layers. You know it came from a rejection of God’s Word by some influential people? But has science confirmed the long ages?

Well, no. The rock layers don’t support the idea of long ages. Take the famous layers in the Grand Canyon. If they were laid down slowly over millions of years, there should be erosion between the layers. But there isn’t!

We also wouldn’t expect to see multiple layers bent together. The old, dry layers should have cracked while the young, wet layers were bended. But multiple layers are bent together! They weren’t laid down slowly over millions of years.

The geological evidence doesn’t support long ages for the earth’s history.
