    In the story of Noah, Noah and his family are delegated as the saviors of the human race due to their “innocence.” However, their innocence is derived not only from their loyalty to the Creator, but from their ignorance toward the ways of other people. God described all other people as wicked, stating that “everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil” (Genesis 6:5). But Noah, “the only blameless person living on earth,” was told he and his family would be spared. God was direct in his approach to Noah, explaining that he would wipe [all living creatures out] out along with the earth” (Genesis 6:13) for God felt that “the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence” (Genesis 6:11). Despite saying that everyone…

    Every now and then, people are faced with a problem in which they have to decide whether to do one thing or the other. Sometimes the answer is easy and simple, but there are other times when it is not as easy. In the stories of Gilgamesh, Rama, and Noah, every single one of these people had to make a tough call, maybe one that is harder to make than the other. They all had other choices and they could have easily followed any one of these choices but they did not. It was their duty, their…

    Noah would have needed a detailed understanding in naval architecture and in physics, mechanics, structural analysis, and calculus - fields in which weren’t even considered until thousands of years after this occurrence. Now, ancient shipbuilding did achieve new levels of technological sophistication, but this was when vessels were being made much smaller compared to the size the Ark (Moore, 1983). This level of complexity surfaced slowly over centuries: nearly a millennium passed while Egyptian…

    A Comparison of Noah and Utnapishtim’s Floods The stories of “Noah and the Flood” and “Gilgamesh” can compare fairly similarly. On the other hand they have their fair share of differences. Both stories can be traced back to ancient times. These stories come from the same idea of a flood wiping out the human race. The stories have two different styles of text, one with a Hebrew scriptural text and one is an ancient Mesopotamian epic. That’s just the start of the comparisons of these two tales.…

    very seriously. In the bible, the people became aggressive, wicked and corrupted in their ways; once God noticed that he became angry with the people. Because of the people wickedness, the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth. (Genesis 6:5-6). In “Noah’s Ark”, God realized that the earth was corrupt, full of hatred and violence. Consequently, God knew the only way to ameliorate the world was, by causing a flood that would annihilate all creatures from the face of the earth.…

    The creation story, along with many other stories of the bible are not clear black and white of what can be considered right and wrong. This grey area is not only present in the story of Noah and the ark but also in other accounts such as, the Epic of Gilgamesh. Many scholars hold a belief that the story of Noah found in Genesis 6-9 and the Epic of Gilgamesh found in Israelite literature are accounts that have significant parallels. In the beginning of each story, the one deity or the gods…

    But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.” This “being flooded with water” is clearly a reference to the days of Noah. Like Christ, Peter says that in the last days, people will show evidence of their ignorance and debased minds by mocking the idea that God will again disrupt the continuity of life by displaying His wrath on a desperately immoral world. Peter says God will again bring punishment on a…

    The epic of Gilgamesh and Genesis each show different views from the Story of the Flood. Each gives background on different time periods and by different parts of the world. One telling of Gilgamesh seeking answers from Utnapishtim on how to live forever to avoid the suffering from death, and Noah a man chosen by God to save his family and animals from the cleaning of the world floods. By showing the difference and similarities of both stories we can not only understand more of storytelling of…

    Erica: Hi Noah, I was just telling the kids about how God gives all of us “do overs”and about the big thing God wanted you to do. Ryan: One day God told me he had a giant do-over planned for the World. He told me to build a boat that I called the “Ark”. Erica: How big was the Ark? Ryan: Well, it was huge. It was about 1 ½ football fields long and higher than a 4 story building. It had a deck that went around the boat that could hold 20 basketball courts. It was big & it was sweet.…

    It begins with Zeus being angry at the titan Prometheus for giving the people fire. Prometheus warned his son, Deucalion about the flood and told him to build a boat. Deucalion brought his wife on the boat and by the end of the flood, they were the only ones who survived. A similarity between the Genesis flood and the Greece flood is a higher power coming to the hero of the story and warning him about the flood, however in Genesis the higher power was a god and in Greece it was a titan. Another…
