        When Was the Ice Age
        in Biblical History?

        (excerpts)

        Many pieces of the "Ice Age puzzle" remain unsolved,
        but one thing is sure.

        Based on the Bible, we can be certain that the changes
        occurred within just a few human generations-not over
        millions of years.

        When Did the Ice Age Begin?

        The Bible gives us many clues to help us nail down the
        real time frame of the Ice Age.

        For example, when did it begin?

        Bible Fact: Eight Generations from the Flood to Abraham

        With this information, can we set an approximate date
        for the start of the Ice Age?

        Geological Fact: Growth of Arctic Ice Sheets

        Knowing these things, how can we use the human history
        described in the Bible to shed light on the Ice Age's
        beginning?

        It is reasonable to conclude that the start of the Ice
        Age roughly coincides with the Babel judgment.

        So it is reasonable to conclude that the start of the
        Ice Age in the Northern Hemisphere (the Pleistocene)
        roughly coincides with the Babel judgment, around a
        century or so after the Flood (perhaps 2250 BC).

        Who knows, perhaps the Ice Age was part of God's plan
        to keep people from quickly resettling in one place
        again.

        The unpredictable climate would have made it difficult
        for anyone to settle down and raise seasonal crops in
        the years immediately following Babel's dispersion.

        When Did the Ice Age End?

        The Bible also sheds light on the Ice Age's end, though
        in an indirect way.

        If we can..., we can establish approximately when the
        Ice Age ended.

        Bible Fact: Thriving Cities by Abraham's Day

        Archaeological Fact: No Cities Associated with Ice Age Remains

        What Were People Doing During the Ice Age?

        Archaeologists have found thousands of campsites and
        small settlements where Noah's descendants lived after
        the Babel dispersion during the Ice Age.

        These early pioneers were daring explorers and settlers,
        quickly reaching as far as Australia and the Americas.

        Bible Fact: The Whole Earth Is Settled

        God recognized the danger of unity without obedience to
        His word, so He scattered the people from Babel.

        Twice the Bible repeats that "the Lord scattered them
        abroad from there over the face of all the earth"
        (Genesis 11:8–9). Notice that this was the Lord's doing.

        This supernatural event is essential for a proper
        understanding of human history.

        Yet without God's written Word archaeologists would
        have no way of knowing this happened.

        Archaeological Fact: Brief Appearance of Neanderthals,
        Woolly Mammoths, and "Stone Age" Villages

        Same Tools, Different Views

        Same Stone Tools, Different Views

        Depending on your starting assumptions, you can reach
        very different conclusions, even if you start with the
        very same facts.

        God's Word gives us a different picture of human history.

        The earth is only six thousand years old, and humans
        lived here since the first week.

        All the Ice Age peoples were descendants of Noah's three
        sons, who already knew how to build ships, towers, and cities.

        Putting It All Together

        Why did people wait so long after Babel to
        build cities and farm again?

        On top of those problems was God's supernatural intervention
        to scatter the small groups of families over the face of the
        earth.

        The very purpose of this judgment, after all, was to limit
        mankind's ability to "do whatever they imagine."

        And it was clearly successful!

        We still have a lot to learn.

        But we know for certain that the Bible sheds light that
        puts our world into perspective, including the Ice Age.

        In fact, it is essential to a right understanding of
        reality.
