When Was the Ice Age?

An Ice Age?

Yesterday we learned that, yes, there was an ice age but only one, not many, like secular scientists suggest. But when was this ice age?

Well, it was caused by the effects of the global flood of Noah’s day. This flood occurred around 4,350 years ago. So, the ice age began relatively soon after that and lasted a few hundred years.

Interestingly, Job, who lived around the time of Abraham, often mentions snow, ice, and hail throughout his book. But this isn’t weather he would normally see where he lived. Perhaps Job was describing the ice age!

When we start with the history recorded in God’s Word, we can explain what we see in the world.
