What's under all that ice?
What's under all that ice on both poles?
Could things be discovered there upon melting that may be problematic to the ToE?

I'm going to go with "no".

Probably not, especially considering how there is very little crust near the surface at the north pole...
4/8/2008 1:43:53 AM
Tell ya what... why don't you go find out yourself...
4/8/2008 1:52:39 AM
Not likely. If there is, and scientists find it, you'll be the first to know.

Yes, lets ignore the millions of pieces of evidence supporting evolutionary theory that are currently extant, lets ignore the total absence of any scientifically credible evidence supporting Creationism, and discard Evolution in favour of Creationism because of what MIGHT be under the ice.

The Earth, and no.

Yes, there are vast collection of creatures beneath the ice that contradict a wide variety of theories that our feeble human minds have come to conclude about our reality. But we will not survive long enough to know how wrong we were, when the Elder Things and the Shoggoth are let loose to wreak havoc on our puny flooded sphere (/obligatory Lovecraft reference).
And by the above, I mean probably not. And by probably not, I mean that you are a moron grasping at straws in the most bizarre manner I have ever seen.

Yes, atheists put it there so you wouldn't find the undeniable evidence for god. That's why we get so worked up about it melting and invented global warming,...

You'd better get right on this, here's a hairdryer.
4/8/2008 2:10:12 AM
Next stupid question!

You are actually correct. We will find Adam there but he may not be what you think.

"Could things be discovered there upon melting that may be problematic to the ToE?"
Let's say for arguments sake that there is. There may be some scientists who want to stick to the old evolutionary model, but most of them will take this new evidence and either refine the current theory, or create a new one that fits the facts.
That's what science does. It changes as new evidence comes along. This is much better than holding to a set of beliefs that are over 2000 years old and virtually unchanged, no matter what reality tells you.

Please no, we'll all get turned into tomato soup by a Rei.

"What's under all that ice?"
4/8/2008 2:56:02 AM
Under North pole? The rest of the earth.
Under South pole? Cthulhu.
4/8/2008 3:22:28 AM
But I thought global warming was a liberal commie atheist myth?
Seriously, pick a side.
4/8/2008 3:28:45 AM
You mean under all that ice which, when it's layers are counted, proves beyond any doubt that the Earth is much older than 6,000 years?
4/8/2008 3:33:07 AM
New? Yes. Problematic? Possibly, if you mean "will require some relatively small modifications to the detail of the ToE. Problematic as in "will disprove ToE"? No.
The poles were not always frozen, so it is possible some new fossils will come to light if they are thoroughly explored. We'll have to wait and see.
4/8/2008 3:45:53 AM
What would we have to find under the poles to utterly destroy the ToE? Maybe if we found God himself, frozen solid in a block of ice. Then we thaw him out with a hairdryer and he says "Yes, I made the world look like it's millions of years old, deliberately gave you DNA similar to primates, and was in the act of hiding mammoth remains in this glacier when I was buried in an avalanche. How've my religions been doing?"
Anything less than that and I think you're out of luck Scarlet.

No, and no...
Under the North Pole for instance is lots and lots of sea water, and people have gone under it in submarine's many times...
When it melts it's going to be rather problematic for polar bears, not evolution.

EDIT: Also, I for one welcome our new Gigantic Rei overlady. There are worse ways to "die" (so to speak).
4/8/2008 4:16:31 AM
No, probably not. Although there are probably quite a few scientists creaming their pants over the chance to send a camerabot into Lake Vostok.
4/8/2008 4:57:46 AM
Yeah, it's a conspiracy. That's why we fight global warming so the dangerous proofs stay under the ice. I guess we'll have to change our Master Plan again!
