I didn't know that. I wonder why that would be? Was Earth closer to the sun? Or is it because of some change in the atmosphere? Curious.

Don't you mean 6,000 years ago? (I couldn't resist.)

Well Adam, one of your "followers" won't believe this.
Over that period of time, things change.
If your don't believe in climate change as is obvious by
the current extreme changes in temperatures and islands in the
Pacific Ocean just disappearing by water rising, you are in extreme
mental denial - like WALL BUILDING TURNIP TOP!
