Anyone know of a scholarly resource on the ancient deluge comparing different ancient versions of the story, and also going into possible scenarios of the event that the stories refer to? (Ideally from a textual/scientific background, and not a purely Judeo/Christian background) One that also goes in to archeological & geological evidence would be excellent (even if there is none). (Not against creation Science per se - but I want to read up on the scholarly side of this topic.)


Any good resources out there?

These relate to your topic. 

Alas, none of these are in Logos.

If you read news about floods, they tend to be similar to each other. Therefore I think ancient flood stories are not necessarily dependent of each other. I feel this aspect is missing even in the most scholarly books.

Folklore studies of flood stories make this point.
