    Just because another account is older or claims to be older does not prove plagarism. I believe God provided this accurate history to Moses and the one you refer to is just one of many distorted versions passed down after the flood.

    The pitch for Noah’s Ark

    Anyone who takes the time to consult a reasonable dictionary of geology will find that pitch can be extracted by distilling or heating wood. In fact, prior to the rise of the petroleum and coal industries, this was exactly how pitch was made.

    Anyone who had cut down as many trees as Noah and his helpers for the manufacture of an ocean-going ark would certainly have found out about tree resins. If Europeans had a well known and widely used method of making pitch before the discovery of petroleum, obviously Noah could also have had the same satisfactory way of waterproofing the ark with its covering of pitch.

    You mean when the highest point on Earth was about 25 feet high?

    We are not told how high the highest mountain was. However, I would suspect any thing designated as a mountain would be higher than 25 feet high.

    So what do you think the mountains were in height?

    Lower than the height of today's mountains.

    you do understand you offer a faulty argument? if the flood by absurd happened, it stands to reason it was mentioned in numerous other cultures
