Egyptian Deities in the Garden of Eden

A number of years ago I presented a paper at an Egyptological conference entitled The Generations of Heaven and Earth: Egyptian deities in the Garden of Eden. It attempts to show some parallels between some aspects of Egyptian and Genesis Creation stories. Click on the title if you would like to read it. One can't do full justice to this topic in a brief paper, but I think you will begin to see some of the ways in which Egyptian myth may have influenced the early biblical history. I explore the subject more extensively in my book 101 Myths of the Bible.
