    Yah, there were plenty of inundations in the deep past, and similar tales even among isolated, indigenous peoples of the New World. (Given the latest revisionary views that human occupation preceded Clovis people, the repeated destruction of the Missoula floods, or its results, might have been witnessed by survivors. And folkloric accounts of it dispersed by migrating descendants.)

    Coastlines and so-forth were submerged by the effects of the receding ice age. If Doggerland "was flooded by rising sea levels" as late as 6500–6200 BCE, then surely there were scores of other locations around the globe that received similar treatment.

    Claims are made that storytelling goes back at least circa 36,000 years. Australian aboriginal myths reflect aspects of that continent that pertained 10,000 years and longer ago.

    Certainly close alignment to mesopotamian flood myths regarding the Genesis flood story.

    Abraham came from a Sumerian city, which is suspicious. Sumerian history is fascinating, I love the epic of Gilgamesh.
