I presently devising a late stonepunk/ early sandalpunk scenario using the absence of the late ice age as a point of divergence , but the problem is there a difference on how prehistoric event ( ma from now) and ancient event ( bc) are dated. Therefore i ask you the question: how many  years separate the invention of writing (3300 bc)and the last glaciations ?

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I hope this helps: Quote from livescience.com.

Quote
The Pleistocene Epoch is typically defined as the time period that began about 2.6 million years ago and lasted until about 11,700 years ago. The most recent Ice Age occurred then, as glaciers covered huge parts of the planet Earth.

Isn't that similar to the approach taken by Robert E Howard to write the Conan series? A place that is recognizable but you can't place in time, because it's so far back there are no written records?

The difference between "years ago" and "bce" is only a little over 2000 years. Dates before recorded history are estimates at best, and the margin for error is usually more than 2000 years. Therefore, the difference between mya and bce is not really significant.
