There is a lot to unpack here. There is no writing before 4000BC, so nothing is known before then.
As for Superior Race and starting over, there were Neanderthals who mated with other humans. Neanderthals were destroyed, but not their offspring.
There were various world powers in human civizilation from the Persians to the Romans to the Greeks to the French. When Alexander the Great conquered the world, were the Macedonians a "superior" race?
So the early old testament has errors and translation problems and is probably the least reliable section of the bible. It is also my favorite section.
You have people like Methuselah live for 900+ years. This is probably supposed to be months, before a calendar change. Is the Bible Right? Is science right(that nobody lived 900+ years?) If you accept a translation problem they could both be right.
If you correct the years of the early kings to 23 year reigns, then you get Noah living during the reign of Santorini. This is also the same time as the Atrahasis flood, which so many details match with the Noah flood. So the Santorini flood=Noah's flood. Again, with a correction, the bible can match the archaeology/science.
The superior race at this time, would have been the Hyksos(pre-phonecians from Sidon), who conquered the Egyptians and fought with the Greeks. The majority of Egyptian writing, and hence history, begins then, with the New Kingdom. So I think this is when the Bible starts.
Stuff like the Sumerians, and the Pyramid building... that's way way before the bible.
Hope this Helps.
