It depends upon ones concept of the Flood. As I stated before, if one
conceives of the Flood as a monumental, homogenous mess then it would be
hard to find a means by which apparent sorting would occure. On the
other had a catastrophe composed of thousands of events it may be
possible to get pollens captured and deposited in apparent organization.
