John, I'm not arguing that the Bible has a Sumerian source. It also
obviously has a Semitic source as well.

It's a different thing to say the Bible stories ultimately derive, at least
mainly, from Sumerian tradition and to say that ALL mythological concepts
derive from the Sumerians. The latter idea is improbable given the fluid
nature of belief which tends to have MANY sources rather than just one.
