The Ice Age and Sleeping Bear Dunes

The lower peninsula of Michigan is rather large, and when the upper peninsula is added, the size is more impressive. In the northern regions, there are interesting features testifying of the Genesis Flood, including Mackinac Island and Pictured Rocks.

People from Lower Michigan have convenient maps of the area in their hands, pointing out where they lived and traveled. (Since I lived my first forty years there, I point to several locations on my map.) Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is renowned for its beauty. It also interests geologists.

In Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the region give testimony of the Ice Age. Creationist models show how it was caused by the Genesis Flood.

There is abundant evidence that glaciers did a great deal of carving and landscaping. Once they receded, the land gave a sigh of relief and began to change shape some more. The city of Petoskey is near the Sleeping Bear Dunes, and the state stone is also called Petoskey. It is actually made of fossilized corals moved by the glaciers.

The dunes and the Ice Age are a result of the global Genesis Flood. Uniformitarian geologists deny this connection, of course, and postulate multiple ice ages — but evidence for these was conveniently erased by the latest (actually, only) Ice Age. There are several details involved in the Flood-caused Ice Age, and creationists have a far more satisfying model for these things that the speculations of secular scientists.
Like a white winding ribbon along the shoreline, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore’s sandy bluffs ascend hundreds of feet above the waters of Lake Michigan. This steep dune face defines the northwestern coastline of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula for over 60 miles, making it the longest freshwater dune system in the world.

The Ice Age began soon after the Flood and likely lasted for about 500 to 700 years. Evidence indicates this was the only Ice Age in Earth’s history. Scars in bedrock and piles of unsorted rock, sand, and clay all show that massive ice sheets once extended across the Great Lakes region. Even Michigan’s state rock, the Petoskey stone, can be found in the glacial sediments within the park. Petoskey stones are fossil corals that were plucked by glaciers from the Flood layers just to the north and transported south by the moving ice sheets.

To read all of this very interesting article, click on "Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore: Showcase for the Ice Age." My late beloved wife Charlene and I were at Ludington, a few hours south of there. She was awestruck at Lake Michigan and kept referring to it as "the ocean." That's a fond memory.
