Is Noah's Ark story fake?
How did prehistoric flora and fauna, frozen in time during the ice age or before have survived noahs flood. If there was a flood all this would have rotted away.
Here is one example https://www.google.ca/search?q=buttercup+woolly+ma...
How did the flesh of prehistoric animals survive the flood till today frozen in ice. The flood would have melted the ice and the flesh would have rotted. Look at the link l posted
Let me be crystal clear it is 100% impossible for Noah's Ark flood to have left behind the remains in the flesh of all the prehistoric creatures that lived on the earth either before the ice age or during the Ice Age the flesh would have rotted by now there was no flood
BTW the single oldest piece of literature in the entire world is the Flood story in the poem called the Epic of Gilgamesh which was written hundreds of years before the Biblical version and in between there are many more versions like the Epic of atrahasis. The Noah's Ark biblical version is about the 15th version that they uncovered if you don't believe me Google every biblical scholar in the entire world knew about the Epic of Gilgamesh for at least the last 300 years
We are in an ice age half the world is always in winter when the other half is in summer how could you have a worldwide flood in Antarctica when it's like minus 100 degrees with the wind chill factor can you see rain falling at the North Pole. Try convincing an Eskimo that there was a worldwide flood in the middle of January and see if he looks at you a little funny if you can actually see you in the middle of a blizzard
The proof that the flood story is fake lies in the fact that the Wholly Mammoth that was found encased in ice still had blood and fresh meat attached to it body. 100% impossible for this to have survived a flood. All through Northern Canada and Russia as the ice melts more and more ancient creatures are being found, flesh intact.
We have finally once and for all proven beyond the shadow of any doubt that the flood is impossible

It sure is fake.
There isn't enough water to flood the entire earth.
The atmosphere can't hold enough moisture to flood the earth in a 40 day deluge.
Most plant life and fresh water aquatic creatures would have died.
The Ark isn't big enough to hold all earth species. It's not big enough to hold provisions for over a year.
There is no trace of worldwide animal migration.
There is no archaeological evidence of a global flood.
Many societies continued uninterrupted through the supposed time the flood took place.
The flood narrative was likely inspired by Gilgamesh.

OF COURSE it is fake.

You offer a wooly mammoth as evidence of what? A link is not evidence any more than your big mouth is evidence. Are you trying to say the ice age didn't happen? With what evidence? Or are you so inept and delusional you don't think you need any evidence to form a belief or make a claim?
If you do not believe Noah or Moses were real men in verifiable, literal history, then you have not examined the evidence. Noah's grandson, Kush, is named in the Sumerian King's List, for example, outside the Bible.
If you do not believe the history of the Bible, then you have not examined the innumerable evidences.
How do you DENY verifiable evidence? That would be inept, ignorant, and delusional, having confirmed nothing.
Do you have evidence in fact of your own of the origin of life or the origin of matter? Do you have evidence to refute Genesis or Noah or Moses or Creation or the first man, Adam? Then what makes you think Noah's Ark story is fake?
Okay, I'm pressed into giving more evidence after this fool @lowlevel IQ has made so many empty proclamations from unfounded OPINION but presenting them as fact; boldfaced lies.
@lowlevel IQ says "There isn't enough water to flood the entire earth." This said as a matter of "fact", but w/o support showing they know nothing about geology. There is more water below the surface of the Earth than above the surface. Subsurface water is called brine. But the "waters of the deep" were freshwater.
In yet another confirmation of the Bible’s accuracy, scientists have now confirmed what Scripture refers to as “the fountains of the deep.” In the days of Noah and the Ark, these large pools of water beneath the Earth’s crust burst forth onto the surface providing the massive amounts of water needed for the global flood judgment. What has once been a source of skepticism and mockery for those who doubt the Bible, has now been confirmed by secular scientists, again showing that although written over 3,000 years ago, the Bible’s description of the Earth and its natural properties are indeed accurate.
The Bible clearly tells us, " all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened (Genesis 7:11-12). Evidently, the source of great subterranean pools, or “fountains” of water, which were broken open by volcanic and seismic (earthquake) activity added to torrential rains from the heavens were enough to cover the entire earth. Impossible? Not at all, three-quarters of the earth is and probably was already covered by water.
The vast oceans of water beneath the Earth’s crust is precisely what the Bible describes in the first book of Genesis. In fact, prior to the flood of Noah’s day, it had never rained. The waters from the fountains of the deep, the water reservoirs beneath the Earth’s crust: provided water:
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. (Genesis 2:5-6).
Or this goofy assumption by @lowlevel IQ - "The Ark isn't big enough to hold all earth species. It's not big enough to hold provisions for over a year." Geez, dude, you haven't confirmed a thing and think you "know" something?
Over one million animal species have been named, but it’s a mistake to assume all were on the Ark. The Bible says Noah took only air-breathing land animals. So that excludes sea creatures and possibly insects and other invertebrates.
Of the land vertebrates, there are only around 33,000 named living species (and a few thousand more fossil species). These are divided into fewer than 10,000 genera and 1,000 families.
So how many kinds of animals were on the Ark? The answer depends on which modern taxonomic level—order, family, genus, or species—represents each original “kind.” Two times 1,000 gives about 2,000 land-dwelling vertebrate animals that Noah had to care for.
Without tiering of cages, only about half of the Ark floor would have been necessary to house all of the animals required on the Ark and these could all fit on one level (out of three levels). What’s more, many could have been housed in groups, which would have further reduced the required space, leaving enough room for a large play pen as big as a tennis court.
They had decades to prepare for this journey and likely were saving seeds and growing food in planters and pots to transport to the Ark. The upper deck could easily accommodate a large garden.
The dimensions of the Ark are convincing for two reasons: the proportions are like that of a modern cargo ship, and it is about as large as a wooden ship can be built. The dimensions are less than half the Titanic or Queen Mary.
There were large wooden ships of similar length built with the same level of technology in ancient times in far less time: The Greek Tessarakonteres 200 BC 420' x 52'.
The Bible does not tell us that Noah and his sons built the Ark by themselves. Noah could have hired skilled laborers or had relatives, such as Methuselah and Lamech, help build the vessel. However, nothing indicates that they could not—or that they did not—build the Ark themselves in the time allotted.
Impossible? Not at all.

It was the work of God, all things are possible with God. The flood was not a fake. It was the work of God, to start the human race all over. Sin was all over at that time, and God erased the old, and began new.

Yes. Do you really think a 600 year old man can build an ark?

During floods, there is always floating debris. Different plants would have just floated it out or rode on logs which floated. I'm sure some plants and seed were on the ark itself.
Many creation scientists believe the evidence points to the ice age coming very soon AFTER the Great Flood. I think the theory works this way. When the fountains of the deep burst open (Gen 7:11), much of that water was warm and therefore rose, and found its way into the upper atmosphere where it cooled and condensed in the form of massive snowfall towards the poles. The vid below goes into more detail.

No its not fake at all. You're asking about what happened to the plants? Ok. Reasonable question. I'll post in comments.

Of course it's fake. It is physically impossible.
