I don't know where you are getting your dates from, the earliest written records come from Sumeria, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recorded_history although these might be dated on earlier events. reliable sources from 14800 years ago sounds more like wishful thinking. Do you have a source for this info?
The genealogy from Adam to Noah in Genesis 5 has a literary trick by which a period of hundreds of generations can be expressed as ten generations. There is an incredibly long average time between generations and each generation lives an incredibly long time. If you add together the times between generations, add one, and multiply by seven, the Jewish holy number, you get one less than 7400 years. The age for military service in ancient Jewish tradition was 20 years. If you add a holy period of 7 years plus one prenatal year you get 28 years. If you subtract this from the above given lifetime of 120 years, you get 92 years for the nominal overlap in generations. If you subtract this nominal overlap from the incredibly long lifetime of each generation in the genealogy, add these times together, and add 600 years for the age of Noah at the time of the flood, you also get about 7400 years. Three periods of history also last 7400 years according to the cryptic message of the Muses in Plato's Republic. Everything above supports the idea that Aratta was the world's first highly successful commercial city and was destroyed in a great flood midway between the beginning of Natufia and the present. The Sumerian story is that after the flood the survivors were washed into the Persian Gulf. More likely is that the survivors were already trading with Mesopotamia and fled there to start Sumer. Uruk is slightly older than Eridu and was likely an Arattan trading post.
You will go mad if you try to make sense out of religion. If the numbers dont add up it is a stupid story for children, which grown ups are not expected to believe
