The Sky is falling! the Sky is falling!

with that well recorded meteor crash in Russia, Instapundit links to an Atlantic magazine article on meteor strikes in history.

Was the Flood (recorded in both the Bible and Gilgamesh) a tsunami from a meteor strike, not the flooding of the Black sea?
Given the history of ordinary floods in Mesopotamia, who knows if it was one of these or just a superordinary river flood.
and the article also blames an asteroid for the 536 event, a world wide famine/cooling spell, that in the past was thought to be volcanic in origin.
