The gods believed them to be loud and pesky, and found no solution fitting other than termination through inundation. The Bible’s account of the reasoning for the flood is much more in-depth and has a more deeply rooted meaning. God saw that there was evil in man’s heart, and He knew that to fix this problem meant to abolish man.

In both myths, they had a similarity of disobedience. In Genesis, Adam and Eve failed to obey. Adam was told that he was allowed to eat food from any tree except the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But God didn’t want him to be left alone in that garden.
