“O splendid Yima, towards the sacred Aryan land will rush evil as a severe fatal winter; evil will rush as thick snow flakes falling in increased depth. From the three directions will wild and ferocious animals attack, arriving from the most dreadful sites.”
“Before this winter, any snow that fell would melt and convey the water away. Now the snow will not melt (but will form the Polar ice cap). In this place, O Yima the corporeal world will be DAMAGED. Before in this seedland the grass was so soft the footprint of even a small animal could be observed. Now, there will be no footprints discernible at all on the packed sheets of hard ice that will form.”
Modern academia, whether it be geology or history puts the Ice Age way back to 12-, 20-, 50- or even 80.000 years BP! (Before Present) They first of all support their long ago narratives by wrongly interpreting the ice cores’ dark and light sequences’ record as índications for “years”, whereas in fact they are merely evidence of warm melting – and cold freezing periods. But you can’t fight city hall expecting them to change policy.
They also postulated that there is no evidence of a recent Ice Age in documented history, but perhaps they never read the “Vendidad”. The “Vendidad”, the ancient scriptures of the Zoroastrians, mentions that their ancient Aryan homeland used to be way up North in what we’d now call Siberia’s Arctic, but that they were forced to migrate southward, because of an ice age that overtook them!
