For me, the relationship between the Genesis creation myth and Enuma Elish was rather old hat; so, I didn't think my coverage of it was the most interesting part of my book. But, after reading the following review, I realized that most people really don't know much about ancient West Asian mythology. It also seems that this reader was impressed by how many other Bible stories are pure mythology and related to pagan mythology. Atheists dismiss Bible stories as myths. But, simply calling them myths will not change the minds of believers. I explained the myths in detail and in the historical context of the authors. Perhaps demonstrating the total mythological basis of Bible stories totally refutes the most obvious myth, the creation story.

This review is from: Sex Rites: The Origins of Christianity (Paperback)
The more you read about the creation myth's of times past the more you realize they all come down the the most shocking and profound beliefs that have brought what even modern day creationist's think is true. If more people would realize how they came to be taught there own creation story from the past they would abandon all of it. This is perhaps the best book on christian mythology and where it derived from than any I have read ever. From ancient Greek mythology to even back as far as creation myth's started this book goes deep and far into the world and all of the myth's that have made humans think the way they do about god's and religion.
