Genesis 3:20; Genesis 4:1; Genesis 3:15; Genesis 1:26;
The purpose of this paper then shall be to consider the claims raised by those who believe that the Cuneiform tablets form the basis of these stories, to show the weaknesses of these theories, and to advance the positive reasons why the Genesis account is not dependent on any cuneiform original. We shall first treat of the Sumerian tablets for they are older in point of time, and then devote the major portion of the paper to the Babylonian tablets and restrict it to the so-called Enuma Elish.
