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.
I'm not going to give this one the easy promotion - I'm going to grill you a bit first. Hopefully it will make for a better topic.
I've seen the creation side argue that the most recent ice age (there is also evidence of several older ice ages) was caused by "post flood climatic adjustment". Is that the core concept you wish to explore? A LOT of snow is required to build up to glacial ice thicknesses. Then most of that ice needs to be melted to get us back to the current situation. In all, it would seem to be a substantial time period where the Earth was a pretty chilly place.
If you wish to go the "The flood caused the ice age" route, please submit an opening message directly aimed at that theme. You can make such as a reply to this message 4.
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.
As I see it, this topic presumes that "the flood" happened - The question then is how did this flood come to cause/include the ice age. It is not the place for the usual why/how the flood happened/didn't happen debate.
I also presume that Peeta Mellark is going to operate in the young Earth creationist (YEC) time-frame (Peeta needs to make it clear if such is not the case). As such, the question is, how did it happen in such a restricted time frame?
I suspect that Coyote will wish to point out that the most recent ice age lasted longer than that YEC time-frame. If so, I think he needs to make the case of why it couldn't have happened in the YEC time-frame. Something other than citing his favorite old Earth radiometric age dates.
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.
