Chalk It up to the Flood

Rock Layers—Evidence of the Flood

This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the award-winning family magazine, Answers.


Chalk is a limestone made of the shells of marine creatures. The tiny shells sink to the bottom of the ocean, mixing with lime to form an ooze. It’s a slow process. And yet chalk beds around the world are massive. Doesn’t this prove millions of years?

Well, chalk beds aren’t like the ooze in today’s oceans. Chalk beds contain a jumble of fossils, including small and large sea creatures, birds, and even dinosaurs. Such fossilization is certainly not happening in today’s oceans!

Now the unique conditions of Noah’s global flood would’ve changed the water’s chemistry, resulting in a massive bloom of tiny creatures and that formed the chalk beds.
