Three Groups, Three Women

Does Genetics Support an Old-Earth Timeline?

This is Ken Ham, author of In Six Days, a book on millions of years and church compromise.


This week we’ve learned there’re too few mutations in what’s called “mitochondrial DNA” to support a long history for mankind. Mitochondrial DNA is the genetic information that’s passed along only by mothers.

Now, even evolutionists recognize you can trace anyone’s mitochondrial DNA back to one of three major genetic groupings. So, three women are behind all of the diversity we see today. But, who were those women? The Bible actually gives us the answer!

Noah’s three daughters-in-law are the great-great-great- and so on grandmothers of all the people alive today.

Yes, we’re all related through Noah’s family, just as the Bible says!
