Plate Subduction and the Ice Age

Although secular scientists and their pals believe there have been many ice ages in the past, they cannot provide evidence for their claims. Indeed, they are unable to furnish a plausible model for any ice age in their scheme of things. Biblical creationists postulate that the Genesis Flood precipitated the Ice Age.

Secular geologists do not have a plausible model for the Ice Age. Biblical creationists, however, postulate that the Genesis Flood and plate tectonics played a large part in it.

The Flood was not just a huge amount of rain for forty days and nights. It was catastrophic and changed the face of the earth. In Genesis 7:11 we see that the "fountains of the great deep burst open", which provides the answer to something secular geologists cannot explain: the beginning of plate tectonics. This involved plate subduction —

"You mean like when I do math, Cowboy Bob? I do my gazintas, where three gazinta eighteen six times. Then I do my subduction, when I subduct twelve from eight and get four".

We'll leave your advanced mathematics out of this geology study for now, okay? Subduction is when a plate is pushed under another one. This contributed to volcanic activity. The Ice Age could not be caused by some volcanic activity. There was a passel of it during the Flood, plus heat caused by subduction that led to warmer oceans. Let's take a look at a short overview.
Creation meteorologist Michael Oard has written extensively about what it takes to make an ice age. The first requirement is much warmer oceans than we have today, which would provide the extra evaporation needed for heavy winter snowfall. The second requirement is cooler summers that allow snow to build up from year to year and eventually transform into thick ice sheets.

But what would warm the oceans? And what could cause cooler summers for many years in a row? Catastrophic plate tectonics provides the answer for both warmer oceans and cooler summers.
