The Pearl, which takes place in La Paz, Mexico, begins with a description of the seemingly idyllic family life of Kino, his wife Juana and their infant son, Coyotito. Kino watches as Coyotito sleeps, but sees a scorpion crawl down the rope that holds the hanging box where Coyotito lies. Kino attempts to catch the scorpion, but Coyotito bumps the rope and the scorpion falls on him. Although Kino kills the scorpion, it still stings Coyotito.
The Flood is a short story written by Stevan Javellana. He is also known as Esteban Javellana. The Sumerian and Babylonian versions were written down before the Biblical version of the flood but they may have the same cultural memory to thank as a point of origin.
As the above link details it is more likely that Gilgamesh was a corrupted version of the Biblical account rather than the other way around. The other possibility which can be also simultaneously correct is of course that Gilgamesh is a corrupted version of the true event. Every culture has their own ancient flood legends, many with uncanny similarities to the Biblical account.
The Gilgamesh flood story is clearly dependent upon the Atrahasis epic, or a common precursor or variant of this tale See The Evolution of the Gilgamesh Epic by Tigay. Although we cannot be certain, the flood story was probably added to the Gilgamesh epic when it was standardised in the early 2nd millennium BCE.
Consequently, it is ludicrous to argue that there is any literary dependence by either Atrahasis or Gilgamesh on Genesis. Genesis is closer in content to Atrahasis than Gilgamesh, so even if Mosaic authorship of Genesis was granted nearly all scholars, however, date Genesis to the 5th or 6th centuries BCE it would still be at least two hundred years too late.

According to the Genesis 7: These animals were "after their kinds," e. Logically, they would have been the young of each kind, requiring far less room and food than adult animals. If it was a worldwide flood, some would say there must have been millions of mammals, marsupials and monotremes: If the story is literally true, anything that did not go onto the Ark must have perished.
The evolution of a new species or subspecies takes very much longer than years and could not account for the diversity that now exists. Who was cleaning all the mess up out of the ark,to stop disease wiping them out?
What were all the preditors eating? Wake up were supposed to be educated people!. Made in gods imige are we? God moves in mysterious ways,is an excuse,not an answer!. In my oppinion anyone who believes this rubbish,should seek medical help immediately.
