According to the Bible at the end of the Ice Age (we think) the known world was about to be flooded. We now think that at that time all humanity had congregated where the Black Sea now sits. Because of the Ice Age most of the world's water was locked up in ice and this area was dry. Once this ice began to melt, it weakened the ice dam protecting the human civilization. God spoke to Noah of the coming doom, but the rest of humanity was too arrogate to listen. For as long as they could remember, life had existed this way and if it were to change some with power over others might have seen or feared that would change. So, they mocked Noah with pseudo science which has no bases in reality.
Even when they saw the evidence that the ice was melting, they refused to acknowledging this mentally. Mankind has always had a difficult time accepting change. It has always been easier to deny the enviable, than to work to avoid disaster. Even today, there are those who doubt the authenticity of the flood story. It is important to note that just about every society have stories of a great flood. One can question the events recorded in this Biblical story, but it is foolish to discard that a flood of this magnitude happened.
Today humanity faces another life changing disaster. Global warmer is a scientific fact and it is man made. We can do something now or we can be as the people in the days of Noah and watch death come for us all, proving our error. A mistake of this enormity cannot be recovered from. Mankind will be dead and only God will be able to reverse that, but why would He, if we refused to listen when He spoke His warnings? In this case, dead will be dead. Lets not allow it to come to that. The following video is a trailer for a new Documentary by former President Al Gore, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, the sequel to An Inconvenient Truth."
