    For thousands of years, the legend of a great flood has endured in the biblical story of Noah and in such Middle Eastern myths as the epic of Gilgamesh. Few believed that such a catastrophic deluge had actually occurred. But now two distinguished geophysicists have discovered an event that changed history, a sensational flood 7, years ago in what is today the Black t clay tablets 4/5(5).   If a memory of the Black Sea flood indeed influenced the Gilgamesh story, then it could also be a source of the Noah story in the Book of Genesis. The real question is, does it explain the.

    Decades of seabed mapping, reflection profiling, and seabed sampling reveal that throughout the past two million years the Black Sea was predominantly a freshwater lake interrupted only briefly by saltwater invasions coincident with global sea level highstand. When the exterior ocean lay below the relatively shallow sill of the Bosporus outlet, the Black Sea operated in two modes. As in the. book, “The Black Sea, the Flood and Ancient Myths.” It was originally written in Bulgarian by the distinguished father and son team of oceanographers, Petko and Dimitar Dimitrovi, and it is a major contribution interesting of which is the question about the importance of the “Varna”.

    Origins Of The Flood Myth I: The Black Sea Deluge. There is an enduring myth that pervades the majority of world culture known as the great flood deluge. Although this story takes on many different guises from one civilisation to the next, it typically involves the following details.   The two scientists in question are geologists Bill Ryan and Walter Pitman of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in New York, who have published evidence for a large local flooding of a huge area around the Black Sea (Figure 1). 10,11 What has made the news is their linking this local flood to the record of Noah’s Flood in the Bible. This is the.

The Black Sea Flood Question: Changes in Coastline, Climate and Human Settlement Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. Edition by Valentina Yanko-Hombach (Editor), Allan S. Gilbert (Editor), Nicolae Panin (Editor), & out of 5 stars 2 ratings. ISBN /5(2). The Black Sea deluge is the most well known of three hypothetical flood scenarios proposed for the Late Quaternary history of the Black is one of the two of these flood scenarios which propose a rapid, even catastrophic, rise in sea level of the Black Sea during the Late Quaternary.

About this book. Stimulated by "Noah's Flood Hypothesis" proposed by W. Ryan and W. Pitman in which a catastrophic inundation of the Pontic basin was linked to the biblical story, leading experts in Black Sea research (including oceanography, marine geology, paleoclimate, paleoenvironment, archaeology, and linguistic spread) provide overviews of their data and interpretations obtained.

This leaves the question of whether a truly huge flood ever happened. This question has engendered heated debates among scientists. Within the last few years, the theory has been proposed that the Genesis story refers to a flooding that occurred when the then-small lake in the center of what is now the Black Sea rapidly became a large sea.

William B. Ryan and Dr. Walter C. Pitman, claim that in B.C., saltwater from the Mediterranean and Aegean seas escaped into the Black Sea, which was a landlocked freshwater lake at the believe the flood covered more t square miles of coastal plains and increased the size of the Black.

In a recent article from the Washington Post, explorer Robert Ballard (discoverer of the Titanic) led a team to the Black Sea in search of evidence for Noah’s feet below the surface, they found evidence of a ‘sudden, catastrophic flood around 7, years ago—the possible source of the Old Testament story of Noah.’.

The Black Sea is a body of water and marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean between Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Western Asia. It is supplied by a number of major rivers, including the Danube, Dnieper, Southern Bug, Dniester, Don, and the watersheds of many countries drain into the Black Sea beyond the six that immediately border it.

The Black Sea has an area ofkm 2. In B.C., the risen waters of the Mediterranean Sea burst through the narrow neck of the Bosporus, inundating and destroying the civilization ringing the fertile Black Sea basin.

[The Black Sea was theretofore a smaller Black Lake of fresh water.—Ed.] It is this catastrophe which triggered the great Indo-European migrations.

Interest in the Black Sea quickened last year with the publication of "Noah's Flood," by Columbia University geologists William Ryan and Walter Pitman, suggesting that the modern-day sea.

The Black Sea would have widened at the rate of a mile a day, submerging the original shoreline under hundreds of feet of salty water.

Combining the more precise dating technique with a more reliable sea-level marker, the researchers could be confident and conclude that the “Black Lake” water level at the time of the flood was around 30—not 80—meters lower than present, and the flood raised the level by only 5 to 10—not 50 to 60—meters.

Kuprin and Valentin M. Sorokin : $ The Genesis Flood can also explain this smaller Black Sea flood. It was likely caused by an increase in ocean level resulting from melting ice sheets toward the end of a single post-Flood Ice Age.

During the Flood cataclysm, hot material from the earth’s interior would have significantly warmed the post-Flood. The fully preserved dunes were a proof that the flood must have happened fast.

The findings are described in their book Noah’s Flood, which claims that the Black Sea used to be a lake but was flooded with salty water and turned into a sea. In ancient Greek texts the lake’s name was Pontus Euxenos (and ‘Pontus’ means ‘Lake’).
