Thoughts on Global Warming

global_warmingFew people anymore question the fact that global warming is taking place. It is still a good questions to ask whether we have anything to do with it or not. We know that there has been at least one ice age in the past, and possible several. If there have been multiple ice ages, then the earth apparently goes through a regular cycle of heating and cooling, over a long period of geological time. What if there was only one ice age? In the frozen north – I’m talking Canada, Alaska – there is a layer of the ground known as permafrost. It is permanently frozen. Permanently?  There is frozen moisture soaked into the soil. It stands to reason that at one time that moisture was not frozen, the time at which it soaked into the soil and then later froze, eventually to never again thaw. At one time, Alaska was NOT frozen as it is today. So the ice caps are melting and the ocean levels are rising; that’s what they have been doing for centuries, and perhaps have done many times before. Global warming may or may not be something we have any control over, and if the earth is in a warming cycle it is obviously not the end of every living creature. If global warming is going to kill everything, how did animals survive the last warming cycle?

Conservative Christians who believe the earth to be only 6,000 years old will not buy my multiple ice age argument, but… they’re the ones who tend not to believe there is such a thing as global warming. The old earth (4 bill. years) people will be more apt to accept warming/cooling cycles that span geological time frames, and so it is to you I ask: If global warming is going to kill off the emperor penguins, as well as 1,000’s of other species, why are those animals living here today in the first place? Since evolutionists claim that animal species have lived on earth for millions of years, then this particular occasion of global warming shouldn’t do them in.
