The Flood – 2349 B.C. & Noah’s Ark Found

It’s obvious that You were really mad at the world for being the way they were, but, well…did You really cause that flood and kill everyone, or was that a scare tactic?

“And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

“And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights” (Gen 7:10-12).

“And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days” (Gen 7:24).

This ark, located an hour south of Amsterdam, is a replica of Noah’s Biblical boat. Underwater archaeologist Robert Ballard is in Turkey, looking for evidence that the Great Flood happened.

“And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;

The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated” (Gen 8:1-3).

The Antediluvian Age lasted approximately 1,659 years, ending in 2349 B.C.

Noah’s Ark Found

In 1872, George Smith of the British Museum, found tablets in King Asshur’s library in Nineveh that gave proof of a flood that paralleled Noah’s flood, approximately 2344 B.C.

Ninevah Flood Tablet
The Flood Tablet, containing part of the Epic of Gilgamesh. From Nineveh, 7th century B.C.E. The British Museum, London.

This fragment, barely six inches high, is a clay tablet from the ancient city of Nineveh. In the 1860s, George Smith, a regular lunchtime visitor to the British Museum, taught himself to read the then-untranslated text, which is in the oldest known form of writing, cuneiform.

As Smith translated the fragment, he realized that it was an ancient flood story, which scholars have since identified as the 11th tablet of the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the first great epics of world literature.

The fact that this flood story was approximately four hundred years older than the oldest surviving text of the biblical flood story was used by proponents on both sides of the controversy about whether the biblical stories were historically accurate. Its greatest importance, however, is the place of the Epic of Gilgamesh in the transformation of writing from a utilitarian and economic to a literary and cultural format.

King Asshur lived during the First Dynasty of Ur, which existed after the Flood, but before Abraham was born in Ur (Gen 11:26), approximately 1991 B.C.

On these tablets, there are inscriptions that express things such as: The Flood, The age before the Flood, and The time before the Flood. It must be understood that these people were far from being dense, they were nothing like the cave man. These people:

• Built ships; ruled cities; farmed the land,

• Tended herds; created music; danced and sang;

• Married; gave their children real names, instead of calling them boy or girl or a Number,

• Could communicate with one another through speech,

• Were able to write; create extravagant gold, silver and lapis lazuli jewelry, manufactured bowls of alabaster, created objects of art, and 

• Had fire and made weapons.

From Adam to Noah each person had many children, who in turn had many children.

God did not destroy just a few stupid people, He destroyed a huge population of intelligent but cruel and evil beings.

Scientists of today believe that the coal deposits of the world are due to the remains of the Antediluvian Period.

This belief is supported by the presence of polystrate fossils in coal beds. Aside from that, plant types and their texture found in these deposits give proof of turbulent, not stagnant, water.

Also, found deep in the coal deposits are human skeletons and artifacts, such as complex and convoluted gold chains.

Genesis 4 speaks of highly developed metal-working (Gen 4:22), and Cain was the first man to build a city (Gen 4:17).

Again I say, these were not stupid people, but they walked the way of the devil and God hate’s evil:

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate” (Prov 8:13).
