Does Genetics Support an Old-Earth Timeline?

Part 5



This is Ken Ham, author, speaker, and blogger on science and the reliability of the Bible.


This week we’ve seen how genetics confirms the Bible’s history. Humans haven’t been on the planet for hundreds of thousands of years. We’re all descended from Adam and Eve just six thousand years ago. But, what about the animals?

Scientists have measured the mutation rate for several species in the animal kingdom. And they found that there aren’t enough mutations to account for even tens of thousands of years of history.

The mutation rate simply does not support evolutionary ideas about the past.

But it is the rate predicted based on the history provided in God’s Word!

Yes, creationists can make accurate predictions because we start with the right history.
