The issue is even if such evidence could be found that would not support the accounts in the stories.


Maybe not but I have always thought that a story grows in the telling. It would be neat to see if a regional flood for the appropriate time could be confirmed though. Something like the black sea deluge.

Re: bottlenecks
Well, the area is one that has seen many floods, particularly if you look at the Tigris Euphrates area and since there is no sure date for the stories it is almost certain that you can find many flood events that could be the origin of the myths.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
