Fossil Graveyards


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, author and speaker on Genesis and all of the Bible’s reliability.


Around the world we find fossil “graveyards” where creatures were buried on a massive scale. For example, the famous White Cliffs of Dover are the remains of trillions of tiny marine creatures, all buried together. And in Grand Canyon, there’s a layer containing billions of squid-like creatures called nautiloids. Now it would take a lot of sediment to bury this whole population alive.

Also in coalbeds near Chicago, researchers have uncovered over 100,000 specimens from 400 different species, some with soft parts still intact. Now that points to rapid burial.

So what could do this? Only a global Flood, as described in Genesis.
