The story of Noah is good in that both the idea there was a flood and that there was as Noah and family and God and warlords... is all equally hard to believe from a science standpoint.
The version of the flood in the (much older) mesopotamian 'Gilgamesh' stories is much more fun. The Gods send the flood to kill all the people, not because they are corrupt or evil but simply because they are making too much noise!
(Honest - look it up).
