Deep layers of permafrost are estimated to take hundreds of thousands to form, so how can the Bible’s timeline be true?
“The occurrence of millions of frozen mammoths in permafrost poses a real challenge to this assumption. In the article The extinction of the woolly mammoth: was it a quick freeze? (https://creation.com/the-extinction-of-the-woolly-mammoth-was-it-a-quick-freeze) Michael Oard notes that the climate in permafrosted areas was very different in the past. He says:
“The mammoths are found with a wide variety of other mammals, large and small, many of which were grazers. They lived in a grassland environment with a long growing season, mild winters, very little permafrost, and a wide diversity of plants.”
“…Had slow and continuous climatic change taken place over hundreds of thousands of years (or even hundreds of years) the mammoth would simply have migrated. Instead, they are found in their millions and “some were entombed in a standing position”. This is solid evidence that the slow rates cited for permafrost development are not correct.”
