Fossils In Only Twenty-Four Hours?

This is Ken Ham, on a mission to strengthen the global church with God’s Word.


How long does it take to make a fossil? Well, most museums and textbooks will say something like this: a creature dies on a riverbed, is slowly covered in sediments, and heat and pressure gradually turn it into a fossil.

But one lab made fossils from fresh specimens in just twenty-four hours! They were identical to natural fossils. It doesn’t take millions of years to make fossils—it just takes the right conditions!

So why do scientists think fossils in nature take a long time to form? Because they’ve rejected God’s Word, which says there was a global flood—and it would’ve provided the perfect conditions to make billions of fossils very quickly.
