Can you imagine a man at 600 years old building a boat to house a bunch of animals and with all the neighbors laughing at him? And we think we have it rough.

Noha's story has many exact parallels mentions of which are found in other cultures from around the world. Noah's counterpart in Greek mythology was Deucalion, in Indian texts a terrible flood was supposed to have left only one survivor, a saint named Manu who was saved by Vishnu in the form of a fish, and in Zoroastrian myth the figure of Yima saves a remnant of mankind from destruction by ice. Flood stories have been found also in the mythologies of many preliterate peoples, from areas distant from Mesopotamia and the Eurasian continent too. I personally believe some kind of flood did occur in the past when humans were not that far spread and lived in a clan.those who survived after the flood told stories about it to other generations and in passing fro mouth to mouth it became a legend and actual history got lost somewhere.For details about different vesions of this story refer to this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah's_Ark
