Is that a serious question? Michael Oard has written a great deal about the cause of the ice age. I could present a little of his hypothesis if you like. I don't really know of any other hypotheses regarding the cause of the ice sheets. Sub-zero temperatures such as they claim characterized the ice age are generally very dry.
I just saw your post about the limestone. I must have missed it before.Ã‚Â Sorry.
The question was rhetorical. I think it's ironic that people can't believe in the flood, yet they listen to NOVA tell us about mile thick ice sheets
That's alot of ICCCCCEE!!!
Go ahead and do something by Oard if you want. You don't have to ask me--I just work here
. The OP is basically asking for catastrophic water evidence. Yeah, Oard has done alot of research.
About the limestone--I don't know if you've had a chance to see all the hills and passes on I55 south of St. Louis, but it's classic. You'll see folded, of course unfaulted strata-- a sign that the strata were wet when bent. If it was heat like they like to say, that means it went down into the earth and came back up to the surface--AND it would be marble or something else-- a metamorphose of limestone. So it was wet--we know lithified rock doesn't bend without faulting--when will they ever get this?
Unstratified and stratified juxtaposed to each other. Hello---that doesn't work under an old earth model. You can't have a big mashed potato glop of indurated lime mud next to stratified limestone. How does one explain that in a millions of years scenario??
Tubular hollows, like open caves--on top of some of the passes. They look smoothed out like rock beds in some streams I've seen. Definitely a sign of moving water.
Also a few very large boulders, not under cliffs, but a bit isolated. Possibly broken off, but no sign of breakage--they are roundish.
Also--I have a hard time believing that 150 feet high cliffs right next to a pasture signifies erosion between it and the next hill. Why wouldn't ALL of it erode away. Limestone will weather with water--why would some of it weather away and then a 150 foot hill just sits there with a big cliff. I find fast erosion between hills and transport of pre-existing lime mud a good explanation. Though I would like to see research of this area by Austin, Oard, or someone more qualified than I.
