Yesterday we learned that Noah’s flood is the key to the ice age. So let’s unpack that some more.

A worldwide flood would’ve caused huge changes in the earth’s crust, including intense volcanic activity.

Now these volcanos would have filled the atmosphere with particles that would have reflected sunlight, cooling the air. The splitting of the earth’s crust—and underwater lava flows—would have released huge amounts of heat, warming the oceans. Now this increased evaporation would have fallen as snow. And this snow would have quickly piled up—especially at the poles and higher latitudes.

As the world settled down after the flood, the ice age slowly declined.
