Epic of Gilgamesh

We as people can never truly see everything that has happened in the world, including huge historical events that go way back in time. There are many stories about the way things happened and what certain cultures believed in. The bible tells about our past and what according to the bible happened, but like almost anyone we don’t just start to believe everything we hear. People around the world seek evidence to either prove or disprove our past history. Many archeologists have found certain pieces of evidence which shows them that some of these ancient myths out there are real, like the Genesis of the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Flood of the Bible. Many believe that only one of these stories is true, and that possibly one story inspired many other stories to come about. The two stories (Genesis and the Flood) had a lot of similarities like they both built a boat, there was a flood, and they had animals of all kind on board. As I kept reading though I realized that these alike stories also have a large amount of differences, and that’s what I’ve been concentrating on.
One of the differences I came about first was probably the most obvious one. When you read both stories I noticed how one was a total of 6 days and 6 nights, and the other was a total of 40 days and 40 nights which is a huge difference. I can’t picture a person mixing up a story and going from 6 days to 40 days. In Genesis it says “For six days and six nights the winds blew, torrent and tempest and flood overwhelmed the world, tempest and the flood raged together like warring hosts.” In the Flood it specifically says”And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights.” Which makes me wonder, if we found evidence that there was a flood, then which of the   stories is talking about the real flood and which is just a fable?
In the Bible there is only one god, so for Noah he only believed in God. Noah was told by this God to create an Ark, for God is going to flood the world. Well in Genesis there...
