The waters of the Great Flood were said in the Bible to be higher than any mountain... If this is so then how come:

1. Noah, his family, and the animals didn't die from lack of oxygen, hence the extreme altitude.

2. Die of extreme cold, hence altitude.

Furthermore, wouldn't the surface of the water at such extreme altitude freeze over after 40 days and nights?

"1. Noah, his family, and the animals didn't die from lack of oxygen, hence the extreme altitude."
They could have simply brought plants with them into the ark. But we don't even have to go there.
As the water rises, so does the oxygen, since it is less dense then water.

"2. Die of extreme cold, hence altitude. "

a) Fire.
b) The body heat of all those animals.
c) Genesis 7: 11 says "on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth" that would heat up the water, & hence the atmosphere.

But,as before, we don't even need to go there, if we know how the universe works.

Why is it colder at higher altitudes?
Basically, the simple answer is because there is less air pressure.
If the earth is covered in water, all the air goes up to the surface, thus the air pressure did not decrease as the ark rose, & thus it would not be cold.

This also answers:
"Wouldn't the surface of the water at such extreme altitude freeze over after 40 days and nights? "

Not to mention that pro gives no reason to assume that the water didn't freeze.
