Did Jesus Believe the Gilgamesh Epic is Accurate History?

     There is good evidence from the earliest gospel source, Quelle, that Jesus Christ accepts the historical veracity of the Gilgamesh legend.  Jesus recalls Noah's Flood in accordance with Gilgamesh.  He says,


Just like the days before the Flood, they were eating, drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark.  Then the Flood came and destroyed them all.[1] 


Where in the Biblical account does it say that they were eating and drinking before the Flood?  Nowhere!  The Biblical account of Noah's Flood does not mention these details.  But the Gilgamesh epic does.  Gilgamesh reports that Utnapishtim, the Babylonian Noah, said,


I butchered bulls and sheep for the people every day.  I gave the workers oil and various kind of alcohol, which they guzzled as if it were a river of water, and they partied like New Year's.[2] 


This is proof positive that Jesus was familiar with at least some of the material in the Gilgamesh epic, and that he accepted it as true.  Jesus could not have received any of this information from the Bible, because it wasn't there.  He evidently received this information either from reading Gilgamesh or from his own observation.  His own observation is more likely, as the Gilgamesh epic was in his day long-ago buried in the sands of Parthia.  Thus, this arguably indicates that Jesus was around at the time of Noah and Gilgamesh, and that he witnessed events from that time.  How else could Jesus have obtained this information?

The creationist narrative in Genesis 1 is contradicted by many ancient Christian texts.  Instead of an Almighty Creator God, ancient Christian texts espouse that the universe is born from blind arrogance and stupidity.  The angels caused evolution to occur from species to species.  There are many gods, (or aliens?), and the Christian God is just one among them.  Satan the Devil writes scripture, and thus the Bible was polluted with Genesis 1.  Archaeology and modern scholarship demonstrate that Genesis is indeed corrupted.  Cavemen walk with Adam and Eve.  Esoteric prophecies reveal the coming of Christ, and also reveal the dark forces that govern the cosmos.  Such are the ancient Christian writings.

Science vindicates the truth of these ideas.  Evolution often happens too fast for Darwin’s theory.  Gaps in the fossil record indicate that some kind of unnatural force acts together with natural selection.  Astrobiology reveals that intelligent life probably evolved long before us.  The fossil record reveals strange clues that aliens abducted species and transported them across oceans, and that DNA from diverse lineages was combined to spawn hybrid species.  Evidently, aliens influence evolution, and they are the gods of the world’s religions. 

This is not fiction.  All these facts are thoroughly documented in the links above.
