Extensive Glaciation in Southern Hemisphere

From whose womb comes the ice? And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth? The waters harden like stone, And the surface of the deep is frozen.

(Job 38:29-30) NKJV

Creationists don’t seem to grasp the concept that Noah’s flood and Peleg’s tectonics are separate events, and they don’t seem to have a coherent answer to the question: “where did the flood waters go?

Or how about this one: “How does the narrative of creation account for the ice age?” None of these issues are a problem because the answer to both is scriptural and it’s staring us in the face. It’s a lot simpler than you might think: The waters of Noah’s flood were dried up by a wind. Evaporation causes cooling. Cooling water freezes at 0°C. The ice age began as a direct consequence of Noah’s flood.

The part which is truly interesting is the concept of glaciation. “Extensive glaciation in the southern hemisphere?” Did you know that there used to be glaciers extending north and south from the Equator? Probably not. However, as a way to make it look as if this is a different earlier ice age than the one originating from the poles, the evidence for this is all grouped together as the Permian. We’re going to look more closely at the development of the Permian and its role as a patch on a shaky narrative tomorrow.

The Appalachian mountains formed after the sediments they’re made of were deposited, that’s simple logic and an acknowledgment of cause and effect.
