The Ice Age and the Re-Creation of the World   $5.00

It is evident from the Torah’s description of the the Mabul, the Deluge, that it was not merely a local flood. A local flood couldn’t have caused the ark to rise above the mountain peaks and finally land on top of Mount Ararat, some 16,000 feet above sea level. The flood and volcanic activity, described in the Torah came with such ferocity that it caused the waters to boil, as is stated in the Talmud, and raged for more than a half a year. This presents a serious problem for many students of the Torah with a scientific background, however, as the commonly accepted view of geologists and paleontologists is that there is absolutely no evidence for a world wide flood of such proportions, one that is supposed to have occurred only some four thousand years ago. Such a flood, they argue, should have left rich evidence of the death and destruction that came in its wake and yet they cannot find any. According to the Scientific Creationists, however, such a flood did occur and in the process it altered the face of the globe. In contradistinction to secular scholars who tend to view the tremendous sedimentary deposits across the globe as having been slowly laid down over hundreds of millions of years, and therefore cannot find any trace of Noah’s flood, Scientific Creationists see the fossils as being relatively new, having been laid down, to a large degree, at the time of Noah’s world wide deluge. To them, evidence of the Flood is to be found all over the world. The problem, they claim, is not with the evidence but with the dating system currently used by the scientific establishment. Because of their secular orientation, secular scientists need to view the world as being billions of years old in order to allow enough time for life to have arisen spontaneously and subsequently evolve without the interference of a Divine Being. That is why their dating system, which is based upon the axiom of spontaneous evolution, is so sacred to secular scientists. According to the Creationists, however, the earth is relatively new. The latest layers of fossils, however, which are that of the Ice Ages were laid down, in their opinion, after the Mabul, the Flood. In fact, according to the Creationist view, the Ice Age is an indirect product of the Mabul, as the volcanic eruptions lowered temperatures and the heated water created heightened precipitation, enough to generate a deep ice covering over much of the Northern Hemisphere. This lecture is devoted to the explanation of the tumultuous events during and after the Mabul, including the rise of the Himalaya and Andes mountains.
