More Settled Science: Wrong about Ice Melt in Greenland, Sea-Rise

Has anyone not even considered that when the ice melts it will become "ocean-water" and that the interaction of the sun and sea keeps the level of the oceans at what they are intended to be (if one accepts that there is a Designer behind nature's designs)? Can anyone explain why the sea-levels would rise at all?

The sea level has been rising ever since the last ice age ended and those glaciers began melting. There is proof in many places. For example, Cosquer cave, near Marseilles, is 37 meters below sea level and contains paintings made from 27,000 to 19,000 years ago. And they are currently studying 'Doggerland', an area between Great Britain and Norway which was populated by humans until the North Sea covered it about 8,000 years ago.

Dear Larry,

Of course, you are correct, Sir.

Melting Sea Ice can't cause the oceans to rise as the ice is
already in the water.

God will not let sea levels rise to a level affecting human life..the "Flood" will not be repeated..Fire will cleanse the sinners next time..our eye should be turned on eco-terrorists that campaign to control our nuclear capability..Notice many affected by the flooding in India, China and Russia are not Christian and not protected by God's grace.

On the contrary, He will send a flood to wipe out Washington DC and San Francisco just as He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their depravity.

Suppose you cut X cubic miles of ice from a glacier in the Himalayas, melted the ice, and then dumped it into the ocean. Do you think the water from the ice would magically disappear, or would it cause the ocean level to rise?

Spread it out over the millions of square miles of ocean, and it gets awful thin.
And if the Earth really is getting warmer, then there will be more evaporation into the warm air, just to bring its humidity back up. That water will come out of the ocean.

Define the level of the oceans that they are "intended" to be. I think I am smelling a hit on religion vs. science here.

New research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tends to now show that ice melt estimates previously calculated for Greenland have not significantly accelerated- as has been previously postulated- nor has the melt contributed in a meaningful way to the rise of sea levels.

Recently, much of the destruction on the east coast as a consequence of Super-Mega-Hurricane Sandy Gore was blamed on the rise in sea-levels, which have been blamed on…drum roll…global warming.

The newest revelation, amongst many in the last several years that have muffled the global warming chants of  “settled science, settled...
