FLOOD STORIES


One evidence that the Genesis flood was a real event is the prevalence of flood stories in other ancient cultures, remnants of the story passed on by Noah’s descendants, stories corrupted as his descendants forgot the one true God.



The Mesopotamian flood story describes their gods becoming angry with men and unleashing a flood that the gods themselves could not control. They "cower like dogs inside the wall," (Gilgamish Epic, Book 11) hoping the wall will not give way to the crashing waves. By contrast, when the true God is within the city, "she will not fall." The mythological Mesopotamian gods need a fortress. The true God is a fortress.
