People grow up listening to the story of Noah and the flood They remember the length of the flood the dove and the rainbow very vividly However most people do not realize that the story is told throughout many different cultures and with accounts older than Genesiss version in the Bible Although each of the accounts tells of the flood there are many variations to the story One such story can be found in the Epic of Gilgamesh Although the Epic of Gilgamesh is similar to the Genesis version there are some differences in the days leading to during and after the flood The days leading to the flood are different as well as similar in the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Genesis version of the flood In the Epic of Gilgamesh the gods decided to send a flood because the people on Earth were noisy One man Utnapishtim was given a dream by one of the gods because of an oath Contrastingly in Genesis God sent a flood to destroy the evils that man had created He warned Noah about the flood because Noah was good Both Utnapishtim and Noah constructed boats to survive the flood Utnapishtims boat was 120 cubits and a perfect cube It was completed with seven decks that were divided into nine sections each On the other hand Noahs ark was three hundred cubits in length fifty cubits
