Ages of Ice Sheets

Using circular reasoning and assumptions reminiscent of those used in radiometric dating, evolutionary geologists believe that ice cores extracted from Greenland and Antarctica reveal that the sheets are very old.

Evolutionary geologists believe that Greenland and Antarctica ice cores reveal that the sheets are very old. However, they are deeply flawed. Models based on the biblical global Flood yield much more accurate results.

However, conditions change and new discoveries are made — including the channels under the ice that change the meltwater buildups. Uniformitarian assumptions should have been left back in the nineteenth century. Models based on the biblical global Flood yield much more accurate results.
We are constantly bombarded with processes and events claimed to take millions of years. Most of us have heard that it takes coal and oil millions of years to form. The ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica are also said to be millions of years old. The Greenland Ice Sheet supposedly has been the same size for several millions of years, while the Antarctic Ice Sheet allegedly started growing over 30 million years ago to reach its present size 15 million years ago.
Since the 1960s, scientists have drilled deep into the ice sheets. After the ice is brought up in hollow corers, the scientists measure numerous variables in the ice. From these they have developed a time scale down the core for a little over 100,000 years on the Greenland Ice Sheet and close to a million years on the Antarctic Ice Sheet. It should be noted that they did not actually measure these ages, but inferred them based on their beliefs about the past, as we will see. All the same, in their thinking, these chronologies are considered some of the most accurate.
