"Nereus" (the old man of the sea) has such irresistible similarities to the "Noah" of Genesis, it is quite remarkable.
The fact that both Nereus and Noah were said to be righteous, wise, and peacful, is interesting.
An author by the name of Robert Bowie Johnson Jr. is the first man to really pinpoint the similarities between these two figures of mythology. He has written several books about Greek mythology and its ties to the Genesis story.
Yes, the similarities with Noah should be pointed out in the article. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:16, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
