God—Did He Use Millions of Years?

A Big Problem with an Old Earth

This is Ken Ham, CEO of the apologetics ministry of Answers in Genesis.


Have you ever heard that God used evolution over millions of years to create? Well, if you read Genesis, you’ll see that idea simply doesn’t work!

Here’s one big reason why Genesis and millions of years of evolution don’t go together. Genesis chapter one tells us that everything God made “was very good.”

In the fossil record, we find evidence of cancer, arthritis, and brain tumors. Are these things “very good”? Of course not! But if the fossil record is millions of years old, that means there was death and disease in God’s original, very good creation.

No, the idea of millions of years and evolution is incompatible with Scripture.
