We found an amazingly informative article at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Hambo’s article is titled Ice Cores — The Secret to Understanding Earth’s Climate?, and we’re certain that you’ll find it enlightening. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Are ice cores hiding secrets about earth’s climate? Well, yes and no. [Huh?] Here’s what I mean: yes they are, in the sense that they preserve post-flood history [Ah, post-flood!]; and no they aren’t, in the sense that, unlike what many secular scientists believe, they don’t tell us about climate changes over hundreds of thousands or millions of years.
Great beginning! Then he says:
Recently an article highlighted scientists searching to find old ice — ice that’s supposedly millions of years old [Hee hee!] — in Antarctica. They want to find this ice because of tiny bubbles of gas inside. And they believe that gas preserves a history of the atmosphere back millions of years, which can help us understand climate change then and now.
Hambo tells us why those scientists are fools:
But because these scientists have the wrong starting point — slow and gradual processes over millions of years — they’re going to reach the wrong conclusions about the ages of these ice sheets and how the data preserved in them can help us understand the past and present.
Ah yes — millions of years! Hambo explains why that’s so wrong:
You see, in a biblical worldview, Antarctica hasn’t been covered with ice sheets for 30 million years. When we start with the history given to us in God’s Word, we understand the Antarctic ice sheets like this: Antarctica moved to its present position in the extreme south during and soon after the global flood, likely due to catastrophic plate tectonics. [Link to an AIG article omitted!]
Yeah, the Flood caused the continents to go slipping and sliding all over the place. Hambo continues:
The flood triggered an ice age. [Not mentioned in the bible!] Vast amounts of snow piled up in many places on earth, but particularly at the poles [The bible doesn’t mention the poles either!], building the ice cores in decades or centuries, not slowly and gradually. So those little air pockets haven’t been sitting there for millions of years — they record the atmospheric conditions during the centuries following the flood.
Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! And here’s the end of Hambo’s article:
Sadly, because evolutionists have the wrong interpretation of this ice and these air pockets, politicians end up making bad decisions about supposed man-made climate change because they have a totally wrong understanding of what really is happening (and has happened) in this world.
If only they would listen to Hambo! What’s wrong with those people?
