The Genesis Flood, Doggerland, and the Ice Age

In uniformitarian beliefs, Earth is billions of years old and most geological events happened slowly. With their deep-time assumptions, there were multiple ice ages in the distant past that did not leave evidence of their occurrences. The so-called last ice age is what is usually discussed.

Sea levels were lower for a good part of the Ice Age. Land bridges connected many parts of the world, such as Australia to New Guinea, Alaska to Siberia, the Weald-Artois Anticline connecting Britain and France, etc. People and animals traveled. That last one is the area where Doggerland was above water for a spell.

Although there are speculations about places and events in the past, Doggerland was real. Artifacts are being found even now. Sea levels were lower, but the ice sheets melted and the levels rose again. Doggerland was submerged. The land bridge connecting Britain and France was destroyed. All y'all gotta stay put, c'est la vie. Secular geologists disagree on how this happened.

According to biblical creationists, the Ice Age was one of the aftereffects of the Genesis Flood. So were the happenings during that period. These included lakes that were formed because of ice dams (the one holding up Lake Missoula gave way with impressive results.) Creation science has a better explanation for the events involving Doggerland and the landbridge connecting Britain and France.

Researchers suggest that Britain was separated from Europe in two distinct stages. Both stages occurred during the Quaternary Ice Age (2.58 Ma – 10 ka), the last of the five major ice ages proposed in the evolutionary timeline. The first stage, which has previously been documented, involved a huge land bridge made of chalk running between Dover, England, and northern France. The exposed land bridge was just one of a number of sedimentary rock layers that ran continuously between these two geographical locations at that time.
