When you search around the web for the science concerning when the ice age really ended, the consensus among the darwinistic geologists is circa 10000 b.c., yet equally bibliophobic nautical archaeologists such as Nic Flemming (who has seen hundreds of bronze age port structures on the shallow continental shelf) are forced to say that the end of the ice age was so gradual that the sea level rose in fits-and-starts for up to 15,000 years, from circa 18000 b.c. to circa 3000 b.c., because the presence of the hundreds of bronze age ruins on the shallow seafloor forces their admission that the submergences of those bronze age cities occurred certainly much closer to 3000 b.c. than to 10000 b.c.
But the consensus among geologists and hydrologists is that the ice age ended rapidly, massive sheet flooding and catastrophic climate change when the mammoths were frozen in muck in the north, and when too the deserts of the world were forming in the middle latitudes, with many ruins of bronze age cities remaining now in those vast deserts across north Africa and western Asia, since the end of the ice age, which therefore clearly ended much later than we are being told.
If you google Archaeological Evidence Contintental Shelf Bronze Age Nic Flemming, you’ll see his short paper citing some of the submerged bronze age ruins discovered, which when you add to the underwater ruins off Greece reported by other scuba divers too at Methoni, Alizea, Kyoneri, Kefalos (Kos), Stavros, Kalymnos, Karrathos, and Alonnisos (Kyra Panagia), and off Abdera, Astakos, and Plytra, make it obvious that the ice age ended really circa 1500 b.c. Very interesting to note is that Julius Africanus wrote that the Flood of Ogyges occurred at the time of Moses.
Confirming all this is that Plato said in his Atlantis story that Greece too was much more fertile with much more rainfall, proven by 300 bronze age settlements of Greece which now are beside anciently dried stream beds, from the ice age, when the rain fell much more there because the skies were much thicker with clouds, because the ocean was warmer, having been heated from below about a thousand years before the ice age would end.
