Did Noah experience a local flood which left only a few sediment layers, as floods do today? God’s record is clear: the water covered the entire globe and killed all the animals on earth. Such unique conditions are the only way to explain worldwide fossil-bearing layers thousands of feet deep.
Geologists repeatedly discover the catastrophic effects of local flooding on the earth’s surface, resulting in the same conclusion each time: that substantial amounts of water can have the same geological effect in a short period of time (even laying down rock layers) that hypothesized millions of years of slow water flow would have.
Like people today, almost certainly the people of Noah’s day were busy enjoying the pleasures of life and did not believe or care that judgment was coming. In 2 Peter 2:5, Noah is described as a “
preacher of righteousness.”
Psalm 104:6–9 sheds important additional light on the geological effects of the Flood. “The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place which You established for them” (vs. 8).
Are current, slow geologic processes the key to understanding earth’s past, or was history marked by a global, earth-shaping catastrophe?
Flood legends abound globally across many distinct cultures. These legends point to the reality of the global Flood and the integrity of the account in Genesis.
Was the Genesis Flood merely a localized event or was it a global catastrophe that judged and destroyed the world of that time?
How should the Ice Age, glaciers, and wooly mammoths be understood within the framework of the Bible’s history?
We know mankind had one language after the Flood, before God confused the languages at Babel. Could other languages have formed prior to Noah’s Flood?
Geologists are uncovering evidence that meteors struck the earth throughout the Flood. Could they even have played a role in starting the Flood?
Critics assert that two different dates are given for when the earth was dry after the global Flood. Michael Belknap, AiG–U.S., explains.
Two tropical cyclones were simulated with the NCAR WRF model to determine if warm sea-surface temperatures would cause them to intensify into hypercanes and follow similar storm tracks as the originPDF Download
Abruptness of ancient oceanic alterations fit the Flood.
A hypercyclone was simulated over the Arabian Sea to determine if precipitation could be enhanced over the Middle East and explain evidence for greater vegetation in the past.PDF Download
Old-earth creationists such as Hugh Ross claim Psalm 104:6–9 refers to the Creation Week, but a closer look shows otherwise.
Certain features of the “Upper Cretaceous” period correspond closely with the biblical account of the Noachian Flood around day 150, and uniformitarian explanations for “chalk” are inadequate.PDF Download
These beautiful bows remind me of my parents’ teaching of what the Bible says about God’s purpose in giving us the rainbow.
The uniformitarians believe that the couplets in the Green River Formation are varves, but evidence militates against this interpretationPDF Download
Amid the otherworldly Death Valley of California, geologists are seeing a 1941 stream diversion carve out the land before their very eyes.
It is important to compare the differences in these two flood accounts in order to examine their relationship.
everal years ago, John Reed and I presented the northern Gulf of Mexico Basin as an example where several vertical kilometres of sedimentary strata covering hundreds of square km were deposited.
We did not, and do not, propose that 'most of the fossils found on the earth were buried by post-Flood catastrophes'.
From our perspective, the fossil record into the Cretaceous and further, testifies strongly to God's act of judgment on this world.
Any scientific understanding of the Biblical Flood must address the hydrology and sedimentation that occurred during the Flood and in subsequent years as the Earth settled down.
Argument for an impact bombardment event surrounding the Flood that began with the onset of the Flood and continued for some time, trailing off into the post-Flood period.
Geologic evidence of the Middle East and the globe, combined with Scripture, indicates that the Flood/post-Flood boundary is very late in the Cainozoic.
Applying the explosive pyroclastic volcanism model to the formation of coal deposits, it is entirely feasible that all the coal seams were formed by the conditions during Noah's Flood.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
