Does the bible plagiarize much? Oh yeah, the entire book of Genesis is filled with trite rehashes of Babylonian, Egyptian and Sumerian myths.

The fact that other cultures have stories of a flood doesn't prove that the writers of the Bible copied these stories. If the flood really occurred you would expect accounts of it to be preserved in the mythologies of people all over the world and that is in fact the case. Flood stories are found among people who lived too far from the Middle East to have either influenced or been influenced by the Bible.

The information in ancient libraries came from real minds of real people. The far more complex information in cells came from the far more intelligent mind of God.

True

Yes. Too bad for the bible story that the various myths date to different times, including much earlier.

Flood stories are found among people all over the world because floods happen all over the world. Local floods are talked about, the stories are exaggerated over time, flood myths are born. No big surprise there.

The idea that there was ever a single world-wide flood isn't supported by history or geology or any -ology except theology.
