Mammoths, wooly rhinos, and giant glaciers all bring to mind an ice age. But did such an event really happen? Yes! The evidence is overwhelming.

Now, secular scientists will tell you there’ve been many ice ages over earth’s history. But they don’t have a mechanism to start or stop these events.

The Bible’s history explains why there was an ice age. During Noah’s flood there was intense volcanic activity, which warmed the waters and filled the atmosphere with ash—and it blocked the sun. The warm water quickly evaporated and fell as snow. This snow built up, forming glaciers. As the earth settled back down these glaciers retreated to the poles where they are now.
