Noah told by the Bible. The gods decided to clean up the Earth of a
human population which came too large, but Utnapishtim was warned in
his dreams by the god Ea. He and other workers were building a huge
ship with seven bridges. Utnapishtim boarded,
with his family, his workers and seeds of all the living beings.
The rising waters and a storm continued for six days and six nights.
The gods repent and cried seeing all the global destruction of
living beings and stopped the flood on the seventh day. The waters
covered everything but the top of the mountain Nisur, where the ship
landed. A pigeon was released, but returned because it found no
place to stay. A swallow was also released, but also returned.
Seven days later, a crow was released, but it did not return and
people began to stand up. Utnapishtim made a sacrifice in honor of
the gods, and he and his wife got immortality and lived at the end
of the world.

the Apaches have emerged from the underground world, there were
other people on Earth. Dios warned an elderly man and an old woman
that it was going to rain for forty days and forty nights.
Residents were warned that they should go on top of four mountains,
Tsinatcin the Tsabidzilhi the Becdilhgai and a mountain whose name
remains unknown up to today and not to watch the sky. The people
did not believe the old couple. When the rain came only a few were
able to reach the tops of the mountains and closed their eyes.
Those who had watched the waves had been converted into fish or
frog, those who had watched the sky had been transformed into a
bird. After eight days, Dios told the twenty-four remaining to open
their eyes and go down. Twenty-four were remaining in the
mountains. Eight others survived the flood by looking at where to
go, where they wanted to go and where they were. They told the

spider woman, who was cutting giant reeds and sheltered the people
in the hollow stems. Sotuknag created a great flood, and the people
floated in their rods for a long time. They came back to the
surface after having landed on a small piece of land. They always
had so much food as in the beginning. Guided by their internal
wisdom, Sotuknag came through the door at the top of their heads,
