Amazing insight into the past

This is a very interesting site. I study the story about the tower of Babel for teaching.

Just a tiny little thing first to get all your facts right: Gilgamesh is not the hero of the story of the flood. The story of the flood is a part of the Gilgamesh Epic, and as a part of that he finaly meets Ytnapistim. It is he that tells Gilgamesh the story of the flood. Thus, it is Ytnapistim, not Gilgamesh, that is the hero of that part of the story.

I have a quiestion about the sources in this article. Have you been into Flavius Josephus and David Rohl about the development of the character of Nimrod?

If you have other sources that you do not reveal in this article, I would be very grateful to know.

My Regards
Johan H.

Guess who the original story teller is...

I have recently been doing a lot of reading on this subject...

And what you said is true according to the myths, in fact, according to myth the man who passes on the story to Nimrod, aka Gilgamesh, is his great Grandfather Noah.
