The Ice Age and Ice Cores

Does the Bible Explain the Ice Age?

This is Ken Ham, and we are on a mission to help ignite a new reformation about God’s Word.


Secular scientists tell us that the ice cores show tens of thousands of years. But they assume millions of years—as well as a belief that present-day slow, gradual processes have produced the ice layers.

The ice cores need to be interpreted. And our starting point determines how we interpret the evidence. When we start with the Bible’s history, we interpret ice cores completely differently. The Bible tells us that there was a global Flood … a few thousand years ago. The Flood would have produced an Ice Age. This Ice Age was responsible for laying a large part of today’s ice cores—and in a very short period of time.

So Bill Nye “the Science Guy” is wrong: the ice cores are just thousands of years old!
