Hi,

The only difference between you and me, I think, I read the original documents you don't.

I don't know which one to correct among what you wrote.

Quran doesn't say that flood was global. Muslims believe that it was local. Allah punished only people of Noah.There are archaeological evidence for flooding in Mesopotamia where Noah lived.

(So it was) till then there came Our Command and the oven gushed forth (water like fountains from the earth). We said: "Embark therein, of each kind two (male and female), and your family, except him against whom the Word has already gone forth, and those who believe. And none believed with him, except a few." (11:40)

Numbers are not known, perhaps a few but it is logical to protect local animals and plants from natural disasters.

Then, ask Christians and Jews how "Noah sailing in a boat with millions of animals" They believe that Noah took all animal species on earth on board the Ark and that animals were saved from extinction.
