The Bible gives us the big picture of human history—as well as some critical details—which helps us narrow down when the ice built up and then melted away. After two centuries of research, we now have enough information to begin recreating scenes from the rise and fall of the Ice Age.
Two particular aspects of the Flood were instrumental in causing the Ice Age: (1) extensive volcanic activity during and after the Flood, and (2) the warm oceans following the Flood. We know the extent of the Ice Age because the glaciers left features on the landscape similar to features we observe around glaciers today.
Woolly mammoths probably died after the Flood because there are thousands of carcasses scattered across Alaska and Siberia resting above Flood deposits. There must have been sufficient time for the mammoths to have repopulated these regions after the Flood. The post-Flood Ice Age provides an explanation for the mystery of the woolly mammoths.
As people groups spread out across Asia and into Africa and Europe, a population traversed a landbridge connecting Siberia to North America (a landbridge since submerged in the Bering Strait). From there, the group populated the continent and diversified both genetically and culturally.
The magical model that creates cyclic ice ages from practically nothing
Geophysicists have a love-hate relationship with “the Ice Age.”
PBS recently aired an intriguing documentary covering an investigation into the death of earth’s oldest cold case. How and why was Ötzi killed?
Analyses and numerical simulations were conducted on three recent nor’easters which formed on the East Coast of the United States to explore the effects of warmer-than-normal sea-surface temperatures.PDF Download
Based on the likely four-fold increase in precipitation rate and doubling of the frequency of storms following the Genesis Flood, glaciers over a kilometer thick would have developed in a few hundredPDF Download
Precipitation from two cold, winter orographic storms in Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada was simulated with the NCAR mesoscale weather model called WRF.PDF Download

The Flood of Noah’s day was the greatest catastrophe in earth history, and it involved much more than rain.
A new genetic study conducted at the University of Michigan “bolsters claims that Native Americans are descended from one migrant group that crossed a lost land link from modern Siberia to Alaska,” reports Agence France-Presse.
Dr. Hugh Ross’s Reasons to Believe website featured a new result from the Dome C ice core.
There are four possible explanations for the unique mix of cold- and heat-loving animals that were common during the Ice Age.
Show that ice core dating methods are not independent and open to significant reinterpretation. The root of the problem is the uncritical acceptance of the uniformitarian paradigm.
For creationists, the rocks and their associated ‘glacial diagnostic features’ can be explained very easily. They are the result of gigantic submarine landslides in a warm ocean in the Genesis Flood.
Uniformitarian scientists derive many more ‘annual layers’ in the Greenland ice cores than creationists because of their assumed old age time scale.
Twentieth Century Fox has turned the period of Earth history known as the Ice Age into an animated movie for children called Ice Age.
It is the Greenland Ice Sheet that exhibits annual cycles of one or more of the variables down an ice core.
Mammoth remains have puzzled scientists and laymen for hundreds of years.
This article discusses the weather after the global flood and the conditions needed to create an ice age.
This article discusses the possiblity of there having been a global ice age following the global flood.
Oxygen isotopes in ice cores extracted from polar regions exhibit a decreasing trend in the ratio of the heavy to light isotopes from the beginning of the Ice Age to its end.
Ask just about anyone, ‘Was the Ice Age caused by things getting colder or warmer?’ They will almost certainly say, ‘That’s obvious. Colder, of course!’
What do you know about the Ice Age? How does it fit into world history?
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.
