Rapid Rock Layers


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, co-author of the eye-opening book on Noah’s Food, A Flood of Evidence.


Most geologists say rock layers are formed slowly, over long ages. They believe changing seasons … and lots of time … are required to make complex layers. But a catastrophe last century showed that it’s not always the case.

When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, it produced ash deposits. Some were a fraction of an inch thick, while others were over three feet. They’ve all the features of the other ash beds we find around the world. Yet they were laid down in seconds … to hours.

The Bible tells us in Genesis there was a global flood. It would’ve laid down most of the rock layers we have today. It doesn’t take millions of years!
