A few interesting tidbits:
• Scientists (including Robert Ballard, the explorer who found the sunken Titanic) discovered evidence that the Black Sea was once a fresh water lake that flooded in a cataclysmic event around 5500 BCE.
• The oldest known worshipped deity was female! The role of the feminine in the divine was also entwined with early Judaism and keeps reappearing throughout history.
• One in every 88 persons has a form of autism. The choice to make Noah’s wife an Asperger savant stemmed from personal experience in the author’s life and gives the story a distinctive perspective.
