Northern Greenland Ice Core

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Analysis of an ice core drilled in northern Greenland gives more evidence for the supernatural timing of humanity’s arrival and for an old-earth, local flood interpretation of the Bible. Recovery of a 3-kilometer-deep ice core from the NGRIP Greenland site provides a continuous, unbroken climate record for the past 123,000 years. Unlike the two previous deep ice core samples taken from central Greenland, there is no question about the disturbance of the deepest ice layers. The NGRIP record shows that the current epoch compared to earlier epochs is exceptionally benign for sustaining a large, globally distributed, high-tech human population. As with five other deep ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica, there is no evidence for any kind of global flood and definitive evidence that Earth is older than 100,000 years.
