Sahara Became a Desert Quickly


It has been known for some time that the Sahara Desert once had a green wet climate. However a recent study has shown that it became a desert  much quicker than previously thought. This study shows that the Sahara Desert went from a wet green climate to a desert in just 1-2 hundred years. Now the study dates this event at 6,000 years ago but accorder to Flood geology models based on the Biblical account it would have occurred  2,000 to 2,500 years later but the point is the speed at which it happened.

What is critical here is the fact that this study show that the the Sahara Desert went from a wet green climate to a desert in just a century or two about the time frame required Flood geology models. Now If you may be saying that the 1-2 hundred year time frame is based on the same models that date the event at 6,000 years. While that is true it shows that the Sahara Desert could have become a desert within a time frame consistent with the Biblical account. If you ajust the desertification time  to 3,500 - 4,000 years of the Biblical Flood geology it produces a desertification time of 66-133 years at 4,000 and 58-117 years at 3500 years. This means that the time frame for the desertification of the Sahara Desert is consistent with Biblical Flood geology because the the estimated rates are within the bounds of the this study.

This thus prides additional support for Biblical account of creation and the Biblical time frame of 6-7 thousand years buy showing that the needed desertification time of the Sahara Desert is within a naturally feasible time frame.
