Fast-Forming Fossils


Part 3



This is Ken Ham, , author , speaker and blogger on science and the Bible’s reliability.


Because most schools teach evolution, many people have been led to believe fossils form very slowly.

Not true! Fossils can actually form very quickly.

A recent study tried to form fossils in a lab to learn more about fossilization. What they found was that they could create fossils in under twenty-four hours! These lab-made fossils are virtually identical to natural fossils. Scientists could barely tell the difference, even under a microscope!

You see, with the right conditions—heat and pressure—fossils can form extremely quickly. You don’t need millions of years.

The Bible tells us of an event that would form those ideal conditions—but that’s for tomorrow.
