The Enuma Elish and Genesis – an Analysis

The “Enuma Elish” is the Babylonian myth of creation and is one of the oldest myths that exists, found inscribed on  seven tablets  in Nineveh, in the library of Assyrian emperor Ashubanipal (667 - 626 BC). The creation story laid out in the Bible parallels the Enuma Elish in some aspects, yet differs in others. This Paper will attempt an examination of the two epics in order to assess their similarities and differences, and view them in the light of modern scientific theories of evolution.
