Does Genetics Support an Old Earth Timeline?

This is Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and the new Ark Encounter.


Yesterday, we learned about the rate at which mistakes pile up in our mitochondrial DNA and that the rate contradicts evolutionary ideas. If humans really have been around for hundreds of thousands of years, we would expect to see major differences between people and hundreds of mutations. But we don’t see that!

This is a big problem for evolutionary ideas. Mutations are supposedly the central driving force for evolution, yet evolutionists can’t explain such a low number of mutations. The driving force for evolution doesn’t match evolutionary predictions!

Mutations support a biblical timescale. God created humans a few thousand years ago, so there has been no time for mutations to pile up.
