Around the globe, there is evidence that ice sheets once covered 30 per cent of Earth’s surface. The idea of an icy world—with mammoths and saber-toothed tigers—fascinates people. But how does it all connect to biblical history?
Well, those who believe in an old earth say there were many ice ages. But they don’t have an actual mechanism that could cause one ice age, let alone dozens.
With the Bible’s history, though, the Ice Age makes sense. The global Flood of Noah and its aftermath would have radically changed the climate. After the Flood, there would have been warm oceans and cool summers. These conditions were perfect for tons of snow—and with little melting. The Ice Age resulted!
