Rafting across the ocean


Part 2



This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis , the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.


We often find similar plants and animals separated by vast distances of ocean. So what could explain this?

Well, yesterday we learned some animals may have used floating mats of vegetation to spread out after Noah’s flood. You see, the flood would’ve ripped up every forest in the world. And some of these trees and other plants would’ve remained floating on the ocean’s surface for years before they finally rotted. Plants and animals could easily be distributed as ocean currents carried these mats across the ocean. This can explain why we see similar creatures on opposing continents or islands.

When we start with the history in God’s Word, what we see in the world, well, it makes sense.
