The Flood Explains Fossils

How to Form a Fossil

Part 5



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


This week, we have seen that the fossil record doesn’t support the idea of millions of years of slow, gradual processes. The fossil record actually gives strong evidence for the global Flood described in Genesis.

You know, one of my favorite sayings is, “If there really was a worldwide flood, what would you expect to see? Billions of dead things, buried in rock layers laid down by water, all over the earth. And that is exactly what we find!”

You see, the Flood would have ripped up miles of sediment and redeposited it in layers. This would have trapped and rapidly buried organisms, which became fossils.

You see, the Flood explains what we see in the world around us. We can trust the Bible!
