I think it is of great help to have an alternative translation, one more close to the original Hebrew text:

A Mechanical Translation of the Book of Genesis
The Hebrew text literally translated word for word
Jeff A. Benner 2007


Contents

This book will include two translations. The first is the Mechanical
Translation (MT), located in the left column, where every Hebrew word,
prefix and suffix is translated exactly the same way every time they
occur and in the same order as it is found in the Hebrew text. The second
is the Revised Mechanical Translation (RMT), located in the right
column, which re-arranges the words so that they can be understood
through standard English grammar. Included with each verse is the
Hebrew text (Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia) for those who know, or
are learning, Hebrew and is located above the MT and RMT.
Because the meaning of a Hebrew word cannot be conveyed completely
through one or two English words, each word found in the MT will be
included in the dictionary located at the back of this book. This
dictionary will more accurately define each word within the context of
the Ancient Hebrew language and culture.
Also included at the back of this book is a concordance allowing the
reader to search for each occurrence of a word within the book of
Genesis.

The project

This book is the beginning of a series of translations of the books of the
Bible which will, for the first time, translate the Hebrew text of the Bible
literally into English without inserting a translators interpretation of the
text.

Genesis Chapter 7, Verses 19 and 20 :

7:19
and the water had overcome a great
many upon the land and concealed
all of the high hills which are under
all of the sky,

7:20
fifteen forearms upward the water
overcame and much concealed the
hills,

This is far more accurate IMO.  If I remember right, the Hebrew word for hill could also be used for mountain and was not properly used in the translation.  When we add in that where Noah supposedly lived, no mountains could be seen even in the distance, we are left with the proper description of the hills having been covered.

They didn't use thousands of workers - oops forgot about the work camps
There's no evidence for ramps - You found one?...Bummer
Well we know they didn't use ancient tools to cut and shape the stones - Chisel marks?  Craps
I still say aliens built them!

It should also be taken into account that the part saying something to the effect of "...a day unto God is as 1000 years to man..." is a comparative statement. Meaning that one of God's days is a very, VERY long time to mankind. Much akin to using the number 40 as in "40 years of wandering" in the Moses story, since most people never lived to be 40 years old.

I think George Burns said it better in the movie Oh God.  "Do you know how long a day is for me? When I woke up this morning, Sigmund Freud was still in medical school."

Maybe Noah took just DNA of animals.

LOL, but we never read anything about him having some sort of bio-lab.

Can you cover mountains with 15 cubits of water? I don't think so.

It were nothing but hills.

I thought if he worked with God...maybe God told him...Go and took all samples....Lol. I know how it sounds. That was more as redicule.  Im still under impression of Peters theory of DNA as antene for orders from Cosmos.

Let Ballard do his research. Forget about the religous interpretations because it clouds what we need to know about history. We need to know what happens during global climate change.

It's not really another side of the issue, it's the result of further research.

Exit Black Sea, lol.

Its surely no real surprise that all ancient peoples had flood stories. When they worked out agriculture was the way to go rather than hunter gathering they also would have worked out that crops grow better near rivers and rivers make for easy transport for trade of surplus in good years, they may not have at first realised they were also settling flood plains. People even now can live happily on flood plains for decades with no disasters and all it then takes is one or two really nasty wet years for a lot of flooding and damage to happen. They hadn't worked out weather patterns yet so blamed the gods and displeasing behaviour for these sudden floods that destroyed homes and crops, made stories up about it to warn their decendants that it could happen - none of which is an indicator of a real worldwide flood but is a reasonable explanation for why all ancient peoples have similar stories.
