Where is it found in the Bible that people were not allowed to eat blood after the flood?
God, in speaking to Noah, said:
"Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting.

On the other hand, according to the physical evidence there clearly was no world-wide flood. Ian Wilson (Before the Flood) provides quite compelling evidence that the biblical Flood story might have been a folk memory of the local inundation of the Black Sea around 5400 BCE.
The Bible, at Genesis 6:5, says that God saw that the wickedness of man was great. He brought on a flood to destroy man, but allowed Noah to live, because he was righteous.

The only known flood event that could have originated this and other similar legends was the sudden inundation of what is now the Black Sea, in 5200 BCE.
Well, the ones that are mentioned are the ones that are in the same important lineage: Adam > Seth > Enosh > Kenan > Mahalalel > Jared > Methuselah > Lamech > Noah. But all people who lived before the Great Flood lived over 600 years (except of course for those who were younger that died in the Flood). That's because the atmosphere was so much better before the Flood than after.
Answer According to the Book of Genesis, the biblical Flood was approximately 1,656 years after the creation. This means that the Flood would have taken place about 2340 BCE. In terms of recreating the earth after the Flood, the Bible does not say how God restored the vegetation that would have been needed to feed all the animals, but which would have been destroyed under the Flood.
