Noah’s Flood and the Epic of Gilgamesh

After posting about the Mithras Mythology, someone asked me for an article on the Epic of Gilgamesh. Here is one that I read: http://www.apologeticspress.org/APContent.aspx?category=13&article=5194

Tell me what you think!

  1. I read the Epic of Gilgamesh at school. And my lecturer made the argument that “the bible guys stole the story of the flood from here”. Though I tried to argue back, I was a little disturbed and my faith was quite shaken. What I told him sounds like what I just read from this link.

  2. Thank you for posting this. I would add that the dimensions of Noah’s ark are proportionately perfect for floating whereas Gilgamesh’s ark would never work. Where did Noah get such knowledge? Gilgamesh shows clear embellishment whereas Noah’s account is clearly given as actual history.
