Pan Babylonianism

I don't believe scholars like directly attributing Biblical myth to direct derivations of Babylonian myth, they view it as syncretic myth making with it's own unique mythic characteristics.

There are obviously similarities, every version of the three global-effect myths in Genesis has it's components in Babylonian myth.

The influence of Babylonian myth extends beyond Genesis and leaves it's stamp in several books of the bible, the story of Job is such:


The Ludlul-Bel-Nimeqi - Not Merely a Babylonian Job


Also, many mythic elements of the Exodus has similar components, such as the birth legend of Sargon of Akkad.

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition

Easter, Christmas, All-Hallows Eve..............all are non christian festivals borrowed by the church.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike
