Re: How about a short version of your perspective?
Well I'm gonna have to go with the Flood. Because during the Flood, the earths temperature would have been greatly reduced due to the fact that we would have had 100% cloud cover and in some spots there wouldn't be rain, but snow. Therefore the flood would have resulted in the Ice Age which would have made ice bridges connecting the continents.
Alright, I'm fine with that. But I don't think this would be after the flood, I'm trying to say that the ice would have been formed during the flood, and right now we can still see some of the ice from the flood on Antarctica and in the Arctic. This would also mean that the ice that remains on the earth is not really melting to much (due to Global Warming), but instead it is just returning to the way it was before the flood occurred.
Alright but first I just wanna be clear about something. How many years is the YEC supposed to compose of? I've heard 4000yrs, 5800yrs, and 6000yrs (6000 is the one that I prefer to use but it's up to you).
Alright, then I'm gonna begin with early Genesis where God created Adam and Eve. The original plan God had for them was a sinless, eternal life on earth. This type of life style was carried out until the Devil convinced them to sin. This first sin was what brought shame into the world and caused Adam and Eve to make clothes.
If people never died (and were void of sin/shame) then we wouldn't have to worry about freezing to death, and therefore would have no real reason to where clothes.
Do you have any ideas why we could go anywhere on earth without freezing to death?
In order to prove that there was an ice age intertwined with the flood, you must first prove (or give a reason) that the flood could have happened. The whole point of my asking for a one-on-one debate was to keep other people from intervening, and as the one who set the tone for this debate I reserve the right to ask any question that I believe will help me to better understand my adversary.
I did ask, but the Admin. blocked it. So unless it is unblocked I am gonna have to come up with a new opening statement. If you want to start with your own opening statement/question then feel free to do so because this might take me an hour or so.
Yeah, I heard that you are an archeologist. That's good because then you might be able to tell me why an Ice Age would be impossible when the earth is already covered in water (especially when you consider that a lot of the precipitation that would have fallen during the flood would have been snow due to the low temperatures caused by having 100% cloud cover)
Alright now I've got a couple more questions: How do we know how many Ice Ages there were, and what tells us that there even were any? And (with the exception of carbon dating) how do we know how old the universe is?
