You read our title correctly, dear reader. We’re not fooling. That’s what we found in a new article by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He runs the online creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), and he also created the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
Hambo’s co-author is Terry Mortenson, one of the participants in the Big Creationist Revival in Alabama. Hambo and Mortenson have written Noah’s Flood and Judgment. It’s far from the first AIG article about the Flood, but this one offers rock-solid proof. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Understanding the biblical account of the Flood is crucial to our understanding of the age of the earth. Most of the evidence that secularists use for an old earth (i.e., the fossil record) is in reality evidence of a global Flood that occurred around 4,300 years ago. The Flood would have produced the kind of complex geological record of sedimentary rock layers and fossils that we see all over the earth. They cannot be the evidence of millions of years.
We’ve heard all that before, but where’s the proof? It’s coming. Let’s read on:
In their attempt to compromise millions of years with the Bible, some church leaders claim that the Flood was just a local event and did not lay down most of the fossil record. However, that view will not stand up biblically. In the famous The Genesis Flood book, the authors dealt with this issue five decades ago, giving many biblical reasons that Noah’s Flood was a global event.
Here’s some information about that authoritative book: The Genesis Flood. But we promised you proof. Where is it? Get ready, here it comes:
For instance, consider the covenant of the rainbow. God told Noah that the rainbow was to be a sign there would never again be such a Flood. We’ve seen many local floods since, but never a global one!
Wowie! You gotta admit, dear reader, that’s impressive. A true prophesy! You wanted proof and now you’ve got it.
The rest of the article is a bunch of scripture stuff, followed by warnings about the coming judgment. Visit AIG to read it all if you like. The proof of the Flood is what we found interesting. No more doubts for us!
