Order in the Fossil Record?


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, editor of the apologetics series of books The New Answers Books .


Ask evolutionists about the fossil record, and they’ll tell you it’s a record of millions of years of earth history. They believe it shows animals evolving from simple to more complex organisms.

Now, at the start of this week, we learned that creationists and evolutionists have the same evidence, but different worldviews lead to different interpretations of that evidence.

Well, we reject the evolutionary interpretation of the fossil record because it contradicts God’s Word. We understand that most fossils were buried during the year-long global flood. So the layers don’t represent eons of time. They showcase the successive environments buried by the rising floodwaters from Noah’s Flood.
