Only Eight People

A Global Flood

Part 2



This is Ken Ham, author of in Six Days, the book on church compromise and millions of years.


Many Christians believe Noah’s Flood was just a local event. Now, this idea doesn’t come from the Bible—it comes from an attempt to squeeze millions of years into Scripture.

You see, if the Flood really was global, then the rock layers and billions of fossils didn’t take millions of years to form.

Actually, they were formed just a few thousand years ago during the Flood. So, to accept millions of years, you have to reinterpret the Flood.

But only eight people survived on board the Ark. If the Flood was local, people outside the area would have been fine. This completely contradicts Scripture.

The Bible is clear—the Flood was a global event.
