How can such a biodegradeable material like wood survive as long as it has? Surely the Ark would have rotted away

How about where the Ark of Noah was built. Lets start with that before we find out where it landed. According to some certain church, everything that happened in the Genesis account form Adam to the Flood of Noah occurred upon the North American continent. This at first sound wild and crazy, but then it could have been anywhere on the earth, as a matter of fact, for no one knows. It could only make scientifc sense if the Flood of Noah occurred upon only one continent, and not upon the entire planet. The Ark could have been sweft off of this continent and then blown across the oceans. As well, the Bible says the "mountains" of Ararat, which means the foothills of Mount Ararat. One other key is to find where the Garden of Eden was located. That would give us the land of the Flood of Noah. Right? Well, the rivers of the Garden of Eden had four great heads, or headwaters. And guess what. The Mississippi River is the only river in the world which has four heads!!! This is something to think about. What do you other members think?

Dont forget the jews were inslaved in babylon for centuries, this is where they got the story. Then Babylonian mythology was largely based on Sumerian mythology, even though we dont have any written record of the flood myth in sumerian, scholars have deducted that the flood myth was sumerian.
So i urge all of you too first find out the origins of the myth, best way of finding th true location.
