One website I visited examined different flood stories from such diverse nations as
· East Africa
· Cuba (original natives)
· Egypt (Book of the Dead)
· New Zealand
· Russia- Vogul
· Vietnam- Bahnar
And of those 35 flood stories they examined ALL of them talk of humans being spared in the flood.
32 of them include a boat.
24 include an account of animals being spared.
At least 6 of them include references to a dove.
Two of those included references to a raven (one to a hawk).
