(1) Apparently man was "too fallen" or something.
(2) I see no signs of success, and the OT implies it was failure.
I think it is a second or third hand account of some natural event that was eventually passed on to the Israelite. It is referred to later by Jesus, but I think it is an allegory, attempting to use Noah as a standard of righteousness. Now, I don't understand that part because I think Noah would be vulnerable to a modern-day character assault if he were running for public office, it seems he had a tendency to get stone drunk and sleep outside naked.

I also have to wonder if there is a connection between the role 'the waters' played in Creation and the Flood.
