Modern life all just feels a bit phoney and empty to me and I guess that’s why the thought that there is a deeper, more spiritual way of existing
Asura a member of a class of divine beings in the Vedic period, which in Indian mythology tend to be evil and in Zoroastrianism are benevolent.

There is scientific evidence for both sides of the argument... Sadly both sides amount to little more than conjecture...
You choose the argument that it is physically impossible for enough rain to fall in 40 days. Yet the bible also says that the water also came from underground....Suggesting a much more catastrophic event... Now you may asume there is not enough water underground to allow for this either... Yet your crutch of science says otherwise...
So while I was merely stating possibilities you claim that it is a scientific impossibility which is entirely non factual...

Or does it account for the fact that if enough water covered ALL the land on earth, then there would be no mountains or hills, because the water pressure would have crushed them all down. Not to mention, all the plants that date to older than the flood disprove its existence as well.
Undersea mountain ranges are mountain ranges that are mostly or entirely underwater, and specifically under the surface of an ocean. If originated from current tectonic forces, they are often referred to as a mid-ocean ridge. In contrast, if formed by past above-water volcanism, they are known as a seamount chain. The largest and best known undersea mountain range is a mid-ocean ridge, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It has been observed that, "similar to those on land, the undersea mountain ranges are the loci of frequent volcanic and earthquake activity".
Utnapishtim does explain that we are here to serve the gods. It is explained that the gods were tired of toiling so created man to work in the fields for them.
There is a contradiction in your argument that these people were primitive and unable to articulate what they meant when they described "fallen angels who came from the stars" but at the same time they were able to formulate a social critique of the advent of agriculture.
We had 65 million years of history with civilisation springing up out of nothing 5000 years ago.

I'm pretty sure about 12,000 years ago earth was struck by something big,displacing the sea,and with such force water rose up from the ground,thus destroying earth,who was then inhabited by giants,only makes sense old giant statues etc, the people then were giants,some with cone heads,but whomever they were ,from what they left behind,we haven't evolvded,quite the opposite,the creation of this current habitation,so much has been done to skew the truth,not sure what to believe,several theory's but nothing in stone
No... There would be more pressure. When you add more water to the oceans, the pressure increases.

While I didn't find sacred places, I did find a "burial ground" that was not of human origin.
In the "burial ground" were beings. Lots of beings. Big beings. One eyed giants.
A seer friend from the EU had a look and she did a lot of work over a year or so freeing these "souls" wherever we found them.
