Three Groups, Three Women

Does Genetics Support an Old Earth Timeline?

This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to the authority of God’s Word.


This week, we have learned there are far too few mutations in our mitochondrial DNA to support a long history for mankind. Now, mitochondrial DNA is the genetic information that’s passed along only by mothers. So I got mine from my mum, and my kids got their’s from my wife.

Now, even evolutionists recognize that you can trace anyone on earth’s mitochondrial DNA back to one of three major genetic groupings. So three women are behind all of the diversity we see today. Well, who were those women? Well, the Bible gives us the answer!

Noah’s three daughters-in-law are the great, great, great grandmothers of all the people alive today. We are all related through Noah’s family, just as the Bible says!
