This Day in the History of Events Described in the Bible

On this day in 2348 B.C., the Great Deluge, or Flood inundated the World, or so many Biblical scholars tell us. It could have happened, at least on a local scale. The Epic of Gilgamesh, which is actually pretty good reading, tells a similar tale. I recall seeing something about archaeological evidence of a big flood in the Black Sea area. I'm not sure about the animals part, however. Two of each insect? Really?



Don't forget Deucalion but apparently there are numerous great flood myths from China to Ireland to Aztec Mexico.

Great point.

Interesting article in te Sunday NYT Magazine Section about creationist scientists who attribute the fossil record to upheaval caused by the flood.
