There is abundant evidence for an Ice Age. We still have remnants of it today in glaciers and ice cores. Secular scientists will tell you there have been many ice ages over history. But they have no proof or cause.

The Bible’s history, though, explains why there was one Ice Age. During the global Flood of Noah’s day, there was intense volcanic activity. This would have warmed the waters. At the same time, the ash would have blocked the sun’s heat.

Now follow this: the warm water created lots of evaporation, while cool air caused it to freeze. It would then fall as snow. But the snow couldn’t melt.

So, as the snow built up, glaciers were formed. As the earth settled back down, these glaciers retreated, eventually to where they are now.
