The contradictions arise because Gilgamesh is dated as being written before the Hebrew bible. Therefore, The Epic of Gilgamesh’s flood has a few similarities to that of Noah’s flood in…

This is the case with the Old Testament, and the ancient Mesopotamian story the Epic of Gilgamesh. Although the two stories share many similarities, the flood stories in both piece of…
