RELIGIOUS EFFECTS

In all religions, every church has their own story of the creation of the world. Many people don't understand how mammoths were never, ever mentioned in the story of creation nor in the story of Noah and his arch, there was all type of animals, but the mammoths.Every church and religion think different, just like every person.


According to ''The Ice Age, the Bible, and the Woolly Mammoth'' Both Creationists and Evolutionists believe that there was an "Ice Age". But what they don’t agree on is when it was, how long it lasted, or what caused it. Some scientists say that the ice age started about 2 million years ago, and ended about 11,000 years ago.

Many scientists believes that the "Ice Age" occurred about 4,000 years ago, in the years following the flood of Noah.A flood covering the entire earth is one of the many ways to explain the ice age.

EFFECTS ON THE ECOSYSTEM

The mammoths extinction affected the environment, but people think the climate change made them die out. There's many way scientists think the mammoths died , but they do not know the one that caused it. ''The discovery of the mammoths changed the way many scientists thought about, how it was back then, in the ice age.''


The mammoths ecosystem changed because some say that there was a flood and that may be possible because there was many animals around the excavation cite. The mammoths extinction may have caused severe damage to the ecosystem.
