Like the forbidden knowledge of the Chinese Temple of Heaven, the ancient history of Babylon begins in 2200 BC about fifty to one hundred years after the Great Biblical Flood of Noah's ark. It records the famous epic of Gilgamesh which describes the second most famous account of the flood as the result of the anger of their wise and benevolent God Ea. Ea tells Utanapishtim to tear down his house and build a ship. The size of the ship is approximately the same size as that described in Genesis, except the height is equal to the width and it is seven stories high. The dam of the waters beneath the earth is broken, just as in the Bible, and the water on the earth rises. A storm so intense that darkness prevails seven days, and the ark is surrounded by sea in every direction. Then some islands appear that are the peaks of mountains. Utanapishtim sends out a dove, which returns. Then he sends a swallow, but it found no resting place, and it returned. Finally he sends a raven, which found food and a resting place, and it did not return. Utanapishtim then released everything from the ark and made a sacrifice on the top of the mountain, the same as Noah did in the Bible. He then told the god Enlil that he would not flood the earth again, but instead would cause a famine because of sinners. Thousands of Babylonian inscriptions on clay tablets and pottery as well as papyrus in Egypt and writings found in other ancient countries coincide with Biblical scripture. This similarity is sufficient reason that the ancient flood history of Babylon and the Flood of Noah's Ark history in the Bible should be studied in detail.
Almost every ancient civilization that existed before the flood made records of 360-day years, which changed at the time of the flood, most likely because the earth tilted from rotating around the North and South poles to its present rotation.
Archaeologists place the time of this flood to about 3000 to 2900 BC at the end of the ruling city Eridu to the beginning of the new ruling city Erech to the south, the King's List of eight kings before the flood, the Epic of Gilgamesh and the original coastline of Babylon. Ancient pre-Flood history of Babylon is so obscure that the Babylonian Kings List cites one king reigned 28,000 years, another 36,000 years and two others as reigning a total of 64,800 years.40 The ancient flood history of Babylon and the Biblical Flood and Noah's Ark are remarkably similar.
