Re: On some pre-flood environment
your utterly wacko insistence on the idea of two floods in the Bible, which as far as I know is absolutely unique to you.
It's not unique to jar:
Many exegetes believe that the Genesis narrative is a composite of two different stories that were combined into the final canonical form of Genesis 6—9. Some scholars call these the Jahwist (JHWH) source and the Priestly (Elohim) source. Some notable difficulties between the two sources include: two different reasons are given for why the flood happens, Noah is given two different instructions about what animals and birds to take on board the ark, there are two different time frames given for how long the flood lasts, there are different explanations of the "nature of the flood waters", different circumstances by which Noah and the animals leave the ark, and two different "divine names" (elohim and Yahweh) are used.
From Wiki
Here's a webpage that splits out the J and P sources and puts them side by side:
The Two Floods of Noah

Re: On some pre-flood environment
If the olive trees and grapevines had some non-magical but still imaginary properties before the flood that allowed them to survive the flood... why not the animals too? Why couldn't the pre-flood super-cows hold their breaths for a year? It would have saved Noah a lot of carpentry.

Re: Science vs. creation "science"
Science agrees with the Bible that the land mass was in in one area surrounded by water.
The Bible says that the water was gathered into one place, this does not logically necessitate that all of the land was gathered into one place.
You could have a big lake with two islands in it and all the water would be gathered into one place while the land was not.
We've been over this before, I even drew you a picture.
Here is the picture that I personally drew for you:
I uploaded it 5 years ago...
Notice how the water is all in one pace and the land is not.
