I have done yahoo searches, google searches, and even ATS searches, and yet I find nothing on this matter: the fact that the Ice Ages never
Sure, I have read about it. In fact, the most compelling arguement I have read so far AGAINST there having been an Ice Age is in the book The
Atlantis Enigma by Herbie Brennan (Berkley Books, c 1999); the author doesn't try to prove the existance of Atlantis, but rather finds evidence
and examples of there having BEEN something akin to Atlantis.
In this book, he talks about the Ice Age, and how it cannot have happened, giving often repeated examples of wolly mammoths with green plants still in
mouths and stomach (as well as other large animals in same condition), the fact that cave art, although well detailed, shows that people wore no
clothing, and items like that, indicating a warm climate during the supposed earth wide deep freeze.
There were a couple examples against the Ice Age that made alot of sense to me... the first concerned glacial movement.
Glaciers, by current examples, move downhill. They can move across a flat terrian no further than 7 miles. But all glaciers require a downhill
Look at a map of North America, or more specifically, the Arctic Ocean region.
Where are the mountians?
If the North American Ice Ages had occured the way the experts say, then that would mean that the entire central Canadian area, as well as the Arctic
region, would have to have had numerous mountian ranges. But there arn't any.
So how did the glaciers move across North America from the North?
Another fine example involves the much needed water. This is one I particularly enjoy, and have used this arguement on several ATS threads: To make
ice, you need water.
Obvious enough, right? There's plenty of water on the world which could have been used. Lakes, oceans, rivers, etcetera...
But lakes and oceans and rivers don't create the REQUIRED water; free moisture, airborn... precipitation. Well, okay, they do, but then
again, they don't.
Our current global climate generates enough moisture in the air for some storms, in the form of rain or snow. Now think for a moment... how much
free moisture in the air would be needed to generate a glacial ice sheet to cover an entire geological area? Now multiply that to cover not only
Canada and North America, but Europe, China, Australia, etcetera?
*please keep in mind that according to the Ice Age experts, Siberia was NOT covered by glaciers. In fact, it still doesn't have any ice.*
That's alot of rain.
Wait... back track a moment... let me rephrase that.
That would mean the world was a much warmer and humid place, in order to have that much moisture in the air. ALOT warmer. Oceans would have been
shallower (anywhere from 300 to 700 feet)... explains all the sunken cities and temples discovered, doesn't it?
All that moisture in the air, turning into rain and snow and sleet, freezing on the ground, building up... becoming drifts, growing into banks,
growing into mighty glaciers speeding across the land at a whopping inch a year, swallowing up animals and freezing them while still preserving
Warm weather is needed to create free moisture and precipitation. Cold is only needed to keep the moisture frozen in its fallen state (snow or
Now, I don't know what does which... does massive rain cloud cover trap in heat, or does it block of sun light? Would a lack of sun light still
prevent UV or ultra violet rays from warming the surface? Our moon, and even Mars, has no atmosphere to generate clouds, yet they are cold... just
So here we have the problem.
Warmer climate. Hot, even. A lack of mountians to allow glacial movement. Siberia, the coldest region in the world, ice free, yet supporting
massive creatures (which required ALOT of food in the form of plants). Naked cave art.
All key examples as to the proof of an Ice Age?
Another example, one which isn't mentioned in books...
Crystal Falls, Michigan. Home of the largest living organism ANYWHERE... a simple fungal moss which covers more than 80 acres, dated at over 10,000
years old. Repeat: A SINGLE simple moss (they have traced the root patterns back to the source).
The last Ice Age in America, the Wisconsin Glacial Cap, covered this area, with the ice retreating about 10,000 years ago.
I could go on and on about evidence and proof, give examples and lists against there ever having been an Ice Age (as stated by experts), but I open
the floor to other members now. Pros and cons, it doesn't matter!
**I still believe in a rapid "over-night" type Ice Age scenerio, and I can even see the benefits of polar or global axis shifts, but a slow and
steady Ice Age?**
