Post List of where the Bible got its stories from...

Been watching AronRa's video on the 2nd FFoC. I got to the part about where the Old testament got its stories from, and I did a lil research on some of the documents he listed. But I didnt get info on all of them. The ones I didnt get much info on were The Zend Avesta, Egyptian Book of the Dead, Amenhotep's Religion of Amen-Ra, astrology of Helel ben Shahar, legends of Sargon, Mises, Hammurabi and the Pharoah Seneferu. Maybe if yall could give me the info on those. And just add whatever else the Old Testament may have gotten its stories from.

The Enuma elish is one.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

I think this might be the Amenhotep one, there was an Egyptian Pharoah who tried to start a monotheistic religion for the sun.

Amenhotep IV (sometimes given its Greek form, Amenophis

Amenophis. Hahaha. Pronounce it... haha, great name for a leader.
