The Ice Age and the Flood
To explain the Ice Age, think Flood. Post-flood oceans were likely quite warm, due largely to undersea vulcanism. Warm, moist air masses from these hot oceans dumped massive precipitation over the emerging cooler continents. Near the colder center of the continents and in the higher altitudes, tremendous amounts of snow would have accumulated leading to the Ice Age. The oceans finally cooled allowing the ice to recede. According to meteorologist, Michael Oard, in his books, Life In the Great Ice Age (for children), and Frozen in Time (for teens and adults) all of this could have taken place in only a few hundred years.
