    Thanks, an abrupt flood would fill the bill but a gradual flood might only
    serve to induce mass migrations. It's a shame Ryan and Pitman's PBS
    documentary on the issue is already obsolete.
    Do you have any information on the suggestion that the story of the flood
    comes from the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh?
