**Joseph Fielding Smith Jr. wrote,**

**FLOOD WAS BAPTISM OF THE EARTH.** Now a word as to the reason for the flood. It was the baptism of the earth, and that had to be by immersion. If the water did
not cover the entire earth, then it was not baptized, for the baptism of the Lord is not pouring or sprinkling. - Smith, Joseph Fielding, Jr., Doctrines of Salvation (Salt Lake City: BookCraft, 1955), Vol.2, p.320

**Mormon doctrine is undeniable on this account.**

Jaredites, Mormon scripture, Moses, all teach of a worldwide flood. (Moses 7:42-43, Abraham 1:19, Alma 10:22, Ether 6:7, JSM 1:41-42. 2 Pet 2:5, D&C 84:14-15, D&C 133-54, D&C 138:9,41, 3 Ne 22:9)

If everything died in a flood, then why would we still have worms? Tree ring records go back 10000 years - how did plants survive so long? (Why are there still plants?) Why is there no evidence in ice samples or geological records? Why is there genetic diversity? How could he get so many animals on his boat? How did sloths and penguins travel to where they live? What did koalas eat? Some animals take over others when introduced into the populations.

Mormon doctrine is undeniable on this account.
