Remember that tv documentary on Noah's Ark
that was shown back in 1993?
Well it turns out that this documentary featured the testimony of unreliable witnesses.
Including one who later on admitted that he actually lied about his
finding of the ark.
That peice of wood that he showed in the
movie as coming from the ark actually came from an area near Long Beach,Ca.!
To make it look old he actually cooked in his kitchen using various sauces including teryaki!
With all our satellite technology we would have spotted something like this by now wouldn't we?
Especially something that large and on top of a mountain.
Below are two links that discuss this fraud and the lack of serious research that was seemingly evident in this film
on Noah's ark.

I heard that the Ark was in Ethiopia some where, or in Africa.

But does the ark still exist, or is the whole thing a sham?

Too bad, I remember how crazy it was in Indiana jones.

Sorry. The Sumerians wrote is down first.

Tablet XI of the Epic of Gilgamesh, which tells of the Sumerian flood myth

The Flood Myth (synopsis and origin):

The Sumerian hero Gilgamesh traveled the world in search of a way to cheat death. On one of his journeys, he came across an old man, Utnapishtim, who told Gilgamesh a story from centuries past. The gods brought a flood that swallowed the earth.

The gods were angry at mankind so they sent a flood to destroy him. The god Ea, warned Utnapishtim and instructed him to build an enormous boat to save himself, his family, and "the seed of all living things." He does so, and the gods brought rain which caused the water to rise for many days. When the rains subsided, the boat landed on a mountain, and Utnapishtim set loose first a dove, then a swallow, and finally a raven, which found land. The god Ishtar, created the rainbow and placed it in the sky, as a reminder to the gods and a pledge to mankind that there would be no more floods.

See link for picture of actual tablet. THANK "GOD" THE CATHOLIC CHURCH DIDN'T FIND AND DESTROY THIS RECORD TOO!

The Noah Myth is far from the only usurped Judao/Christian 'allegory' with it's roots predated by Sumerian origin.

In fact, since it predated the Biblical information and crpytically summarized the essence of the books of the Old Testament, many now point to the Sumer origin mythos as extraterrestrial in nature.

Those that founded the first known civilization on the bank of the Tigris (now Bagdad) claimed to be slaves fleeing "those who from heaven to earth came" (THE ANUNNAKI). The stories of being handed magic (technology) before fleeing to mine in the dark are chilling in light of archiological discoveries like a chemical battery jug unearthed in Bagdad dating back to 500ad. Or pictographs in Pyramids of directional light jugs (spotlights?) being used by workers in Pyramid chambers THOUSANDS of years before Ben Franklin (re)discovered electricity.

There are stories also pointing to a possibly genetically-engineered SPARK OF THE GODS from these "Alien masters" imposed on another indiginous species on the earth (neanderthal man) that became the Sumerian slave race.

The SciFi "Stargate" series plays on this theme. But the web is full of scholarly debate on the issue. Search from any engine.

Here is a meaning to what the ''Flood'' stood for in the Old Testament.......

quote////Water as a symbol of life as well as a means of cleansing, or purification, is of particular importance in Old Testament.

It was created on the first day (Genesis 1:2, 6-8).
The Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters (Genesis 1:2).
The earth was founded upon the waters (Genesis 1:6-7, 9-10).
God commanded the water to bring out an abundance of living souls (Genesis 1:20-21).
In some sense the element is close to God (Psalms 17; 28:3; 76:17, 20; 103:3; 148:4).

God is compared with the rain (Hosea 6:3). Water brings life (cf. Exodus 15:23-35; 17:2-7; Psalms 1:3; 22:2; 41:2; 64:10; 77:20; Isaiah 35:6-7; 58:11) and joy (Psalm 45:5).
It is a powerful purifying element and can destroy evil and enemies as in the stories of the Flood and the flight of Israel from Egypt (Genesis 3:1-15; Exodus 14:1-15:21). According to Old Testament Law, it cleanses defilement (Leviticus 11:32; 13:58; 14:8, 9; 15-17; 22:6; cf. Isaiah 1:16) and is used in sacrifices (Leviticus 1:9, 13; 6:28; 1 Kings 18:30-39), in which context the Bible mentions the living water (Leviticus 14; Numbers 5; 19).

Water heals, as can be seen from the stories of Naaman the Syrian cured from his leprosy in the waters of Jordan (2 Kings 5:1-14) and the annual miracles at Bethesda in Jerusalem (John 5:1-4).

John the Baptist used the waters of the Jordan to cleanse people’s sins which reminded typical Jewish custom (Matthew 3:1-6; Mark 1:4-5; Luke 3:2-16; John 1:26-33) - even Christ came to be baptised (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10).
On the other hand, water is also the habitat of serpents whose heads God crushed (Psalm 73:13-14) and of the dragon (Job 41:25; Psalm 103:26).

The story of the Flood is a very popular prototype of baptism. Its origins are clearly shown in 1 Peter 3:20-21 according to which we are to understand the Flood as baptism and those few who were saved in the ark prefigured the Church of baptised Christians saved by the resurrection of Christ. In his dispute with Trypho, Justin Martyr expounds the image more profoundly:

The mystery of saved men appeared in the deluge. For righteous Noah, along with the other mortals at the deluge, being eight in number, were a symbol of the eighth day, wherein Christ appeared when he rose from the dead.
For Christ, being the first-born of every creature, became again the chief of another race regenerated by himself through water, and faith, and wood, containing the mystery of the cross; even as Noah was saved by wood when he rode over the waters with his household.

By water, faith, and wood, those who are afore-prepared, and who repent of the sins which they have committed, shall escape from the impending judgment of God (Dialogue with Trypho 138:1-2).

The Sumerians did first refer to many things including the story of Noah's arc, even down to the bird finding the dry land and returning with a twig, but keep in mind:

If you are refering to people like Kramer, and Sitchin, and their personal views on already interpreted materials from sumerian times, then you are refering to alot of nonsense. Sitchin made assumptions and used speculation to create a fantastic story. A fantastic group of stories. None the less, a fantastic STORY was all it was. A large peice of evidence hinges on one word too, a word that he interprets differently than most everyone else who studies those anchient texts. But the fact still remains that these are all just stories, created by the imagination of man in its attempt to explain its own existence.
