Hi Lou,

I wasn't very clear in my post--I don't at all believe that the animals I mentioned were "Ice Age animals" as in the animals that walked the earth during the Ice Age, because, as you mentioned, all of the animals we have today would then be "Ice Age animals." They were all created during creation week, and all survived the flood on Noah's Ark.

What I meant was that fossils had been found that were dated to the Ice Age. During the Ice Age Oregon seems to have been, for the most part, very lush, and the landscape supported a lot of different animals that have since gone extinct, likely due to the drastic climate change that followed the Ice Age, sometime around 1800BC to 1500BC, according to Oard's chronology.

Lou, scriptures say water came from "fountains of the deep".. We can see evidence all over the earth where water could have been stored. If water was stored under the oceans the empty storage caverns would have been collapsing due to the heavy weight of the oceans. The plates would have been "settling", and still are. just a thought.

I think people have trouble with the Ice Age (like I did) because they imagine it being like the tundra or ice covered all over the world. In fact, only high mountains and the northern latitudes were like that. Right around the "Great Sea", Egypt and Mesopotamia there wouldn't have been ice sheets. The main difference in those places then and now would be moisture; the Sahara was grassland (after it was a swamp). Permafrost is a sign a left-over of the Ice Age; there is none in Israel but there is in Alaska. 

The huge amounts of volcanic ash caused cooling and combined with warm oceans (because of the underwater volcanoes erupting during the flood) there was a lot of precipitation.

Add these together and you get an ice age.

John - Job is post flood as I understand it, have every reason to believe that the earth was not static but was changing through out its history even as we see it today, so these observations are true, they are eye witness accounts, but how much of this is really something we can pin on continental movements?  Frankly I am a little confused myself.  For me geologic distrubances after the flood is not at all anytihg differnt than what we see today, I have read that we do have cyclical cycles where earth quakes and volcanoes may be more pronounced....I am just thinking Job is down the road from Ark and animal dispersion... Movement of continents would have caused some serious stuff it seems to me?

Comment by John W. Coons on March 29, 2013 at 8:23pm

Lou, I believe that Job appeared to live in a very turbulent time. Earthquakes, volcano eruption, etc. Maybe we do have some record of geologic disturbances.

Just thinking out loud.

Lou, I do not have a dogmatic view of the Genesis account (or lack of). I am just posing questions. My engineering background causes me to ask many questions and try to look at all possibilities. I am not as learned as you so please overlook my lack of style. In Him I remain

Comment by Lou Hamby on March 29, 2013 at 5:30pm

Dear John--

I seem to have a propensity for causing some to be bothered by some of these ideas, that admittedly are not out of the box.  While the flood surely makes very possible sense JOhn,,, here is the thought going further---this is again a thought----if GOd created the biosphere, and "pre-pared it to recieve all life.  SOme life is dependent on higher elevations, certain plants etc. etc.  So the earth when it did come out of the oceans(S), what was under the bodies of water (how about continents ??) Could the continents existed right from the beginning  and do to further restructuring and growing the biosphere the mountains grew higher etc. (we know they do grow???) There are theoretical views by atheists  Christians and evolutionists....my inclination John is this...we have no ice age recorded in mans written History that I am aware of.  Now surely all the animals lived in either temperate climate or tropical, and maybe a small area of ice covering.... geologists much smarter and proficient than me are sure we had ice ages???  MY point is this... When ever the continents happened in history, I believe man was not around: I repat not around??????  Could it likely have been the flood--sure!!!  BUt not post flood I don't believe so... Predicate that me not having read Oards stuff on this....but if you ever drove up highway 15 in California  the observations of the mountain chains and vertical strata coming straight out of the ground--had to happen humbly when man did not exist---or that is my thinking ..I know that flies in the face of others...  Cheers!!!

Comment by John Coons on March 29, 2013 at 3:27pm

Lou, I am perplexed as to why does anyone need to have all of the continents connected. I believe the atheistic "scientific" world conjured up "Pangia". Maybe they never were connected. Just a thought.

I attended college for one year at UWA. It was interesting to visit the large limestone deposits nearby where shark teeth could be found. I don't remember if anyone found other kinds of fossils or not. The Black Belt refers to a band of very dark fertile soil (almost black) nearby. The Black Belt region is very flat and could be an area where large amounts of Flood sediment were deposited. This region could also be where large animals were forced to move south during the Ice Age to find drinking water and food.  I'm not surprised that the museum interprets of the evidence from a long age, evolutionary perspective, but the evidence is there.  I think it could be very logically interpreted from a young earth perspective that included the Flood and/or the Ice Age.

Some information, heavily laden with evolutionary bias, from the McWane Science Center, Birmingham AL.  http://www.mcwane.org/exhibits/alabama_dinosaurs

It mentions a tyrannosaur found in AL, among other things.
