The ion concentrations reflect relative levels of global volcanic activity at given intervals across the time line.The information on the composite graphic reveals several very important things.In other words, the ice has been confirmed to be as old as the collective measurements indicate.These data alone destroy the core doctrine of the theory of Young Earth Creationism that the Earth is only about 6,000 years old.In July 1993, the Greenland Ice Sheet Project Two (GISP2) completed drilling down 3,053.44 meters through the ice and 1.55 meters beyond into the underlying bedrock.

In either scenario the top layers would have been washed over by fresh (not salt) water, resulting in a "melt" layer or hiatus in accumulation, in the former case by rains; in the latter case through inundation by a rapidly rising fresh water lens.If our Bible is true when it tells us Noah's flood was a real and global event that, according to the Biblical chronology, happened about 2,345 B. (roughly 4,300 years BP), and if the GISP2 and GRIP data are also true, the only possible explanation is that the bulk of the material which constitutes the basement of the present Greenland Ice Sheet somehow survived that flood.Actually, it would have needed to survive two floods, as the Earth was also flooded before the six-day regeneration.One year earlier the European Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) recovered a core to a depth of 3,028.8 meters at a site 30 kilometers east of GISP2.Comparative data between these two deep cores have allowed scientists to develop an ice core-derived paleoenvironmental record dating back greater than 110,000 years BP (BP means "before present" and "BP" is defined as 1950).
