To some Agnostics, Atheists, etc, the flood story is pure myth. The viciousness of the God or Gods who are said to be responsible for the flood is shown by the lack of concern for the men, women, children, youths, infants and newborns who died a terrible death by drowning. The myth shows how Gods are created by the minds of humans, rather than vice versa. The flood account gradually evolved from the original Babylonian version to the Hebrew version. The Babylonian version may have been a distorted record of an ancient flood which occurred when the Mediterranean Sea partially emptied into the Black Sea circa 5600 BCE.
