This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit our full-size Ark attraction south of Cincinnati.


This week we have seen how genetics confirms the Bible’s history. Humans, for example, haven’t been on the planet for hundreds of thousands of years, as evolutionists believe. We are all descended from Adam and Eve just a few thousand years ago. But what about the animals?

Scientists have measured the mutation rate for several species in the animal kingdom. They found there aren’t enough mutations to account for even tens of thousands of years of history. Mutations just don’t support evolutionary ideas about the past.

But it is the rate predicted based on the history provided in God’s Word! Creationists can make accurate predictions because we start with the right history.
