Well, I wouldn't say that I'm right, perhaps Mr. Parpola is the one who is right.
The idea is very speculative, and I am not familiar enough with the kabbala to really be able to say anything one way or another.
BUT (oh, here i go anyway), I sometimes get the impression that we don't fully appreciate the interconnections between 'greek mythology', the religions of asia minor, the assyrians, babylonians, the really ancient hebrews and cannanites, the minoans, that whole hodgepodge that is called the eastern mediterranean. I mean, you hear about God thundering from the mountain, and then you see the pagan texts about the Storm God ruling from the celestial mountain, and you have to be in awe, if nothing else.
