WASHINGTON – Science has lots of ideas about the ancient catastrophic climate change that almost all agree occurred to create the world’s biggest desert in Arabia.
There are as many theories about what happened as when it happened.
What’s not very well-known even by Bible scholars is what the Bible says – or at least suggests.
