Fossils—Where’d They Come from?
This is Ken Ham, editor of the helpful resource on the flood and fossils, A Flood of Evidence.

Yesterday we discussed a neat fossil find of a young tyrannosaur fossilized with its final meal in its stomach. But why do we have fossils?

Well, most people think of fossils in terms of millions of years. But the Bible’s history explains why we have billions of fossils all around the world—including incredibly preserved fossils, like this tyrannosaur.

You see, the Bible tells us that over four thousand years ago, God sent a global flood as a judgment on mankind’s sin. That catastrophic flood would’ve buried billions of creatures quickly, preserving them as fossils.

Yes, fossils are a reminder of God’s flood judgment in Noah’s day.
