In fact they were the sister colonies with a common cultural heritage. The earliest civilized inhabitants were Sumerians and the land was full of city-states. As with all great cultures they had many myths and legends. One of their legends is about THE GIANT OF THE FLOOD, and the story goes thus…. Just before the world was drowned all the animals gathered in front of the Ark and Father Noah carefully inspected them. Then he said to them "All you that enter and lie down shall be saved from the deluge that is about to destroy the world." Then the various creatures began to march forward into the Ark. Father Noah watched them closely. He seemed troubled and wondered where if the unicorn would make it. Og, a giant, not like by Noah offered to find it for him. But Noah turned down Og’s offer of assistance, considering Og to be one of the giants which were descended from Heaven’s fallen angels. Then the rain started to fall when the time came the unicorn had not appeared and Noah was forced to shut the door of the ark. Og went and sat atop a mountain to wait out the deluge. Did Og and the unicorn make it through the great flood? Well you’ll have to download the story to find out just what happened.
