Genetics and the Age of the Earth

Does Genetics Support an Old Earth Timeline?

This is Ken Ham, author of the new book on Noah’s Ark called A Special Door.


Evolutionists believe modern humans have been around for hundreds of thousands of years. Now, if this is true, there should be huge genetic differences between people groups.

Every six generations, a mutation, or a mistake, happens in the DNA we receive from our mothers. If there have been thousands of generations, there would be hundreds of mutations and huge genetic differences.

But the most genetic differences scientists have found are only 123. And the average is much less than that. This completely contradicts an evolutionary timeline.

But this is the exact maximum number we would expect in a biblical timeline of just a few hundred generations!

The evidence confirms God’s Word.
