“[Hindu] sacred writings distinctly trace a deluge which bears a close and important similitude to that recorded by Moses… Swyambhoma, ‘The Lord of the earth,’ is warned of the intended destruction of mankind by a flood, and he is directed to provide a bark denominated ‘Arga,’ into which he enters with seven holy persons besides himself, and the seed of every living thing.”
          -John Briggs, History of the Rise of Mahomedan Power in India, p. lxiii

    So much for those who have theorized that the Biblical flood was limited to the region of Mesopotamia only. Note the relationship of “Bark” (a boat) and “B’Ark” (in the Ark) and “Arga” (similar to ‘Ark’).
