LOL! Good answer, John.

Bill, I would think that much of the Jewish and Christian mythos goes back not only to the Epic of Gilgamesh, but also to various Egyptian stories, and possibly even farther back than that. New religions tend to get built on much of the existing structure of previous religions....just as happens with other things such as architecture, political institutions, weapons of war, etc...
