Response Article
This article (Mammoths have been found quickly frozen (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CC361.2:

The bodies of mammoths that apparently froze suddenly have been found. Their flesh was well preserved, and they still had food in their mouths. This shows that they were quick-frozen in some sort of catastrophe.

CreationWiki response:

  1. The cited source is a poor source of creation material.
  2. CreationWiki has no disagreement here. This claim is out of date. Most creationists now regard frozen mammoths as products of the post-Flood ice age.
