Gilgamesh is not an 'interpretation' it is the original story that the bible has plagiarized - it is way older than the bible. It is sad that so many souls are lost in illusion, filtering reality through the bible instead of learning reality and seeing if it matches with what the bible says.
There was a Flood, and there was a vehicle, not made of wood, and no animals were on board, but their DNA was.
I haven't had a chance to have a good look at you Noah's Ark links yet but I have to say the story of Gilgamesh seems to grow more and more ridiculous the more I hear about it.
So if no animals were on the unseaworthy top heavy cube 'ship' but just DNA then the questions have to be asked about these 'gods' described as acting like 'whipped dogs' when the water came down:
- how did they go about retrieving this DNA from all the animals (both male and female)?
- did they have electricity and freezers on this cube ship in order to preserve the DNA from destruction?
- Seeing that all the animals died in the universal flood so no wombs of females animals could be used to produce the new lot of animals from combining the DNA into an implantable zygote, what kind of fancy science lab did they bring with them using techniques that are not even possible to us now?
I reviewed all the articles you posted on Noah's Ark ....it is clearly apparent you never even watched the 37 minute video I posted of Ron Wyatt discovery that was extremely thoroughly analyzed in the mid 1980's and the evidence was so convincing and overwhelming the Turkish authorities conducted their own investigations which culminated in them turning the Ron Wyatt site into a National Park and tourist destination named after the Ark in June 21 1987.
Next time if you are going to post some information about Noah's Ark it is best to learn which site the discovery was actually made at, you are using some expedition example from 2008ish on the actual Mt Ararat proper. This is neither the time when the ark discovery was made (more like 30 years earlier by Ron Wyatt) or the location of it.
I suggest you review the video I posted and comment on that rather than instantly think it must be false because it would disprove your entire belief system and thus only perform a simple google search with words like 'Noah ark discovery fake' to try prove your position.
I suggest you watch the Sodom and Gomorrah videos I posted as well where you can actually see the clear evidence of pure molten sulfur balls....the plain evidence is right there! Your stance that the stories in the bible such as these that I am talking about are nothing but myth is absolutely ridiculous
Why did God demand virgins as a part of war plunder? (Num. 31:31-36)
Why did God order the rape of the enemy’s women? (Deut. 21:10-14)
Why would God require a woman to marry her rapist? (Deut 22:28,29).

Op what are your views beliefs on waco
Those who honor the Bible Sabbath will be denounced as enemies of law and order, as breaking down the moral restraints of society, causing anarchy and corruption, and calling down the judgments of God upon the earth. Their conscientious scruples will be pronounced obstinacy, stubbornness, and contempt of authority. They will be accused of disaffection toward the government.—The Great Controversy, 592 (1911)
All who in that evil day would fearlessly serve God according to the dictates of conscience, will need courage, firmness, and a knowledge of God and His Word, for those who are true to God will be persecuted, their motives will be impugned, their best efforts misinterpreted, and their names cast out as evil.—The Acts of the Apostles, 431, 432 (1911).
When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decree draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof.
The people of God--some in prison cells, some hidden in solitary retreats in the forests and the mountains--still plead for divine protection, while in every quarter companies of armed men, urged on by hosts of evil angels, are preparing for the work of death. It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity, that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen. Source: The Great Controversy - Chapter 40 'God's People Delivered' p 635
The guy ended up leaving Koresh's group so he must have had some problems with him but I can't remember what.
There are other types of angels, but the last type presented to me is the seraphim. I cannot do justice in describing their appearance, which resembles living luminescence, as if radiating pure energy. These angels each have six wings symmetrically positioned on their back. Their face is unique and of divine beauty—a design that only the Greatest Designer could fashion for an angel.
The seraphim, with their six wings, also hover in God’s presence. They use two wings to cover their head, two middle wings to keep them aloft, and two wings to cover their lower body and feet. I understand that their wings are not used to keep them flying but to show reverence to the Holy Father.
Exodus 13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
Leviticus 23:16, 17 Even unto the day after the seventh sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new grain offering unto the LORD. You shall bring out of your dwellings two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven; they are the first fruits unto the LORD.
Numbers 3:13 Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the LORD.
