It seems that the going thing for many is to draw parallels between the Genesis Creation account and various myths from the ancient Near East.
I have not read much from the ancient Near East, but what I have read seems to be more dis-similar than similar.
Why the parallelism/parallelomania? Are there truly parallels to be found that show these similarities, or is it a sort of wishful thinking on the part of those finding the parallels?
