Ark Encounter – Interview with Dr. Andrew Snelling

At the Ark Encounter I had the privileged of interviewing several scientists and a designer. The first interview was with Dr. Andrew Snelling. Dr. Snelling has a PhD in geology and is a research geologist for Answers in Genesis.

The first floor shows how the animals could have been...
