    No. There was a time, 450 million years ago, where that continent was sitting smack on the equator.

    Let see this, then what would happen to the world if the whole ice caps in Antarctica Continent melted in Summer , during December.

    Source(s): About 98% of Antarctica is covered by the Antarctic ice sheet, a sheet of ice averaging at least 1.6 km (1.0 mi) thick. The continent has about 90% of the world's ice (and thus about 70% of the world's fresh water). If all of this ice were melted, sea levels would rise about 60 m (200 ft).

    No.  The Bible mentions God creating the seas in Genesis, Chapter 1, but no mention of ice.  I think the ice age  happened after the flood.  In Genesis, Chapter 10, the Bible says the earth was divided (into continents, I assume) in the days of Peleg.
