7th Century SumerianTablet Confirms Flood
AsSumerian Kin Ashurbanipal (669-631 BC) maintained a library of thousands of tablets in Nineveh, northern Iraq. Amongst the tablest is the story of Giggamesh meeting with Utnapishtim who, like Noah, or actually Noah, was forewarned of a great flood sent by the gods. Utnapishtim built a boat and loaded it with everything he could find. He survived the flood for six days while mankind was destroyed before landing on the mountain called Nimush where he released a dove and a swallow but they did not find dry land. Finaly Utnapishtim released a raven which did not return, indicating the flood waters had receeded.
The AsSumerian version of the Old Testament flood story was identified in 1872 by George Smith, ans assistant at the British Meseum.
