The Biblical Creation story was taken directly from The Enuma Elish, the Sumerian Story of Creation, and they are mentioned in that.
Even in the Bible is speaks of El.This sort of conclusion is outdated.
The greats in this subject who did the work to make a detailed and thorough analysis are dead, now and no one has taken on this task to redo those
older works so it sort of stands as is until that happens. Meanwhile there are further studies going on and subsequent essays being written but
dispersed about and not drawn into one big overriding thesis.
How does that dispute the facts? The Enuma Elish and the Epic are a few thousand years older that the OT, that does not make them a dead analysis, it
makes then a Source of Origin.
Do any of you Christians realize just how young your religion and book is?
The ancient liturgical texts of Mesopatamia was linked with different passages in the Hebrew Bible, for example, the Epic of Gilgamesh has direct
parallels with Noah's Ark story, and the Genesis in the Torah parallels directly to the Sumerian creation story, involving the Annunaki, Those who
from Heaven Who Came Down.
The Anunnaki version of creationism was based on ancient excavations of ancient documents and artifacts that support the evidence of ancient
civilizations being helped by extra-terrestrials. In ancient manuscripts, there are several accounts that imply ancient civilizations having knowledge
in advanced science, science that we humans have just learned in the modern era. The double helix model of the DNA, for example, is linked with the
double helix snake on a rod symbol, found commonly among medical symbols. This has been linked to the fact that the snake symbol is based of the DNA
model, which is some evidence of Ancient Historians having knowledge about the DNA genome model.
