this was AFTER the flood and doesn't imply there were no other civilizations. prior to the flood civilizations were spreading all over the place.
"Moreover, even the single sentence in Ashurbanipal's inscription was full of scientific dynamite. He not only confirmed that there had been a Deluge; he stated that his tutoring by the God of Scribes included the understanding of pre-Diluvial inscriptions, "the enigmatic words in the stone carvings from the days before the Deluge." It could only mean that even before the Deluge there had been scribes and stone carvers, languages and writing— that there had been a civilization in the remote days before the Deluge!
It was traumatic enough to have realized that the roots of our modern western civilization go back not to Greece and Judea of the first millennium B.C., and not to Assyria and Babylonia of the second millennium B.C., and not even Egypt of the third millennium B.C. —but to Sumer of the fourth millennium B.C. Now, scientific credibility had to be stretched even farther back, to what even the Sumerians considered "the olden days" —to an enigmatic era "before the Deluge."

Well the reason why i am leaning towards what Stitchin says is because he is the only one that taking into account that we are finding large underground cities that rival our old BCE companions.. no, these cities are just as great if not greater.
Not to mention these huge monuments they were able to erect and countless tales from different cultures that involves sky beings.
Back to Stitchin, his time frame might be off however, heh.
