Great Flood [r]: Most stories in mythology, including Greek mythology as the Deucalion, as well as in the Bible (as Noah's Ark) as well as Mesopotamian sagas such as the Epic of Gilgamesh which had the Utnapishtim story, refer to an event known as the great flood which wiped out most living things.
