Alligators, Mammals, and Palm Trees

Part 3



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


Every time you start your car and burn fossil fuels, do you know what you’re burning? Well, the remains of plants and animals from the world before Noah’s Flood. Did you know there’s seven trillion tons of plant material buried in coal beds on every continent?

And in Wyoming, we find fossil beds with alligators, pike, mammals, birds, and nine-foot long palm leaves! So what would bury seven trillion tons of vegetation—and land and aquatic creatures—together?

We don’t see things like that happening in the present. So something must’ve been different in the past. And the Bible gives us the answer!

The global flood of Noah’s day is responsible for much in geology today.
