Why Do We Have Rock Layers?

This is Ken Ham, president of the ministry that built a full-size Noah’s Ark near Cincinnati.


At the bottom of Grand Canyon, you can touch rocks from before the Flood, including from the original creation. At the very same time, you can touch rocks laid down by the Flood. Why do we have these distinct layers?

The powerful waters of the Flood would have ripped up miles of sediment, destroying much of the original rock layers that God created. The waters would have redeposited that sediment in layers over a short time.

We see these Flood layers all over the world. One of the best viewing spots is Grand Canyon, where a catastrophe—after the Flood—carved a big gash, exposing many layers.

These layers aren’t evidence of millions of years, they are from the Flood!
