Ann Landers is gay?

Throw a stick on this damn planet and you'll hit something 'live' - boring.  Now if it's edible...

Dang, Noah musta had a hard time creating pressurized cold tanks to round them up and keep them alive throughout the flood period.

So..... you think FISH need to be saved from a flood ???????

Unfortunately, the lander found no sign of intelligent life on that planet.

Is the flood large enough to de-salinate the ocean?

Yep.

The massive amounts of erosion that occur during a flood introduce all sorts of sediment, dirt, and other particulates into the water. Floods can also heavily alter the salinity, temperature, and pH levels of the water. This is generally a bad thing for aquatic life.

And deep sea animals are just fascinating.

Not to mention the whole freshwater vs. saltwater species. There is no one level of salinity that will allow both to survive, let alone thrive. If the flood covered all the land, that meant salty seawater in all of the freshwater lakes and rivers and streams and ponds and such. If the Flood itself unleashed enough fresh water into the ocean (from the rainfall and "the fountains of the great deep burst[ing] forth" combined) to reduce the salinity enough for freshwater species to survive, the saltwater species would've died.

Not to mention what salt water covering all of the arable soil on the planet for over a year (the duration of the actual Flood according to the Genesis accounts until the flood waters subsided enough to allow Noah & Co. to finally disembArk ― the "forty days and forty nights" was only how long the rainfall lasted) would do to the ability for plants to grow anywhere on the planet ever again (you do know what "salting the earth" means, right?).

Must have been hard, but the fish exist, so he succeeded.
Science!

Well, just ball parking it a little, the base of Mt. Ararat would be a hair under a mile above sea level, so if we had a global flood that added ~5k feet of water to an ocean that started with an average depth of 14k feet, we're looking at about 73.7% of current salinity max (without taking into account the volume of a sphere & a bunch of other stuff). Anybody ever manage to keep stuff alive in a saltwater tank?

I always wonder where that water receded to...that is, before the rest of the derp in that book turned me into an atheist.

I feel bad for all the un-manned things. Sounds painful.

Isn't this how we wiped out the American Indians practically?

Not even close to enough water is contained in those.

Heretic. Obviously, the water ran off the edges of the Earth. You're not one of those sinners who thinks the earth is ROUND, are you?
