Rock-Hard Clams

Fast-Forming Fossils

This is Ken Ham, encouraging all churches to start their worldview thinking using God’s Word.


Clams are a shellfish that’re found around the world. When one dies, a muscle that connects the two halves of the shell relaxes—and the clam opens up.

Okay, why am I talking about clams?

Well, there are millions and millions of clams in the fossil record—and many of them are found tightly closed. That means they were buried while alive.

Also, these clams are often found in a jumbled mess. This clearly shows they were ripped up, moved along, and then quickly buried very deep. What could do that?

Only the global flood of Noah’s day!

You see, fossils aren’t the result of slow processes over long periods of time—they’re a reminder of the global flood.
