Answers in Genesis, Never Letting Facts Get in the Way of Lies
Based on strict biblical chronology and assuming no gaps in the ancestral lists, the Ice Age ended about four thousand years ago.
Oh dear. Assuming Answers in Genesis actually mean the last Glacial Period (as the last Ice Age hasn’t technically yet ended), then they are out by a factor of three, as the last period ended roughly 12,500 years ago.
To say the last Ice Age ended 4000 years ago is ‘so wrong it’s not even wrong’. Europe was very much NOT in the grip of a Glacial Period in 2000BC, in fact it was about to enter the Bronze Age.
