Yes it mentions covering the highest mountains to a depth of 15 cubits .
Why do believers make it up as they go?
Really? It defines such accuracy? According to Google, a cubit is around 40 cm, so the Bible claims that the flood covered the highest mountain by 6 meters. How would they know that? How would anyone at the time be able to determine how high the flood waters were? And in reference to what, since no mountain top were visible? Noah must have been a pretty smart dude.

Nobody can prove any of that hogwash
That is at best an educated guess based on very little

Well at least you admit its an educated guess.

By educated, I suppose you mean,informed, and by "very little" you must be referring to the consistent set of discoveries in the fossil record and the genome, along with independently corroborating evidence from lab experiments, embryology, genetic algorithms, atavisms, and so on.

You know, all that evidence that creationism did not even suspect existed and cannot explain away today, but evolution explains and in many cases predicted.

An educated guess trumps ignorance based on wishful thinking any day.

Periodic Table

The periodic table is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, organized on the basis of their atomic numbers, electron configurations, and recurring chemical properties. Elements are presented in order of increasing atomic number. Wikipedia

that seems interesting too and periods to place...

The Epic of Gilgamesh, describing a flood, is contained on twelve large tablets, and since the original discovery, it has been found on others, as well as having been translated into other early languages. The actual tablets date back to around 650 B.C. and are obviously not originals since fragments of the flood story have been found on tablets dated before 2,000 B.C.

The account of the Gilgamesh flood almost exactly as the Bible:
Flood occurs in the Mesopotamian plain.
Main character is warned to build a boat to escape the flood
Main character is told to save himself, his family, and a sampling of animals
The boats were sealed with tar
The boats came to rest on a mountain
Birds were released to determine if the waters receded
Main character sacrificed an offering
