Noah's Ark is plagiarized Sumerian story (video)

43alley, 10/29/13; Pat Macpherson, Dhr. Seven (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

How we know: Noah's Ark was plagiarized
What do two of the most popular stories in the world -- Star Wars and Noah's Ark -- have in common? Special guest narration by "Creationist Cat" (user/creation...). Epic of Gilgamesh, Tablet XI: The two Biblical flood stories of Noah, side by side: The Epic of Atrahasis: The Sumerian flood epic (of Ziusudra) (chart at the bottom of link). Noah cartoon footage: Gilgamesh cartoon footage (actually another Noah cartoon):
CORRECTIONS: 1) YouTuber Jason Evers Herbert rightfully points out that Sir Austen Henry Layard should have been mentioned as one of the Assyriologists who contributed to the discovery of the Gilgamesh Tablets. Sir Layard began the excavations at the site, but because digs of this nature take so long, he returned to England; his assistant, Hormundz Rasam (mentioned in the video), eventually discovered the tablets. Also worth mentioning is that George Smith is the man who first translated the tablets.
