You said this:

Mammoths are extinct members of the elephant family that lived in North America, Europe and Asia. Geologists have discovered 2,000 miles of Siberian countryside filled with literally thousands of mammoth skeletons and carcasses. Some mammoths were found standing upright as they would have walked on the earth. Geologists believe that up to five million mammoths were suddenly frozen alive by unusual changes in the earth’s climate.

The news story said one baby mammoth was found. Another story on the topic said the mammoth's tail and ear were bitten off. This would pretty much negate any suggestion that it was "suddenly frozen alive."

Curious that you completely ignored the question about how many mammoths there were....

I'm saying that if it had been "suddenly frozen" as you claim and it was found frozen, it's unlikely that there would have been anything around to nibble its ear and tail off.

BTW, it's a pet peeve of mine, but you shouldn't say "couldn't of been." The phrase is "couldn't have been."

I'd also like to point out that it's more than a little amusing to see you cite to a mammoth that was frozen some 40,000 years ago, according to the article, to support your contention about an event that you presumably believe happened some 4,000 years ago.

So, since you are promoting the mammoth find in support of your position, does that mean you believe the Earth is more than 6,000 years old?
