comment Was early Sumerian civilization wiped out by a flood?
A gradual sea-level rise,which evidently inundated the low-lying coastal regions of Ireland by several meters,would by its nature be a global event and thus inundate the low-lying coastal marshes of Sumeria in the same way.The Holocene Thermal Maximum was at its height circa 5,000 years ago,making average global temperatures a few degrees warmer than today.A few degrees of warming is enough to melt significant amounts of land ice,causing global sea-level rise.
