A flood that killed all animals and plants at the same time would leave the markers of a genetic bottleneck in the genomes of all modern species at exactly that date.

No such markers exist.

I've explained this a million times before and I know you've seen it but you don't llke it so you pretend I never said it.

You've made up a story a million times before which is utter shit.

You'll notice that if someone says something that does not contradict settled science and is backed by credible evidence, it's not discussed again. But if someone makes stuff up on the hoof that is patently unevidenced bullshit and flies in the face of known facts, we tend to keep on saying it.

Yeah, well I do expect the logic of it to make sense to some but it doesn't and I don't care any more.

There's no logic in it, you just made up a story.

The story you made up could be called a hypothesis, but then you'd need evidence to support it. And the evidence does the opposite. So it's just bullshit.

Re: Maybe just a few explanations of how either Biblical Flood did ...
