How many Christians are actually aware that many of the Bible stories are hijacked straight out of other books?
Do any of you read Epic of Gilgamesh or anything about the ancient Egyptian religion? It would probably make you reconsider your stance if you're open minded...

I've actually heard some explanations for this (though they are very sad ones at best). One of them was that the Devil knew Gods plan, so he made other similar stories to make Christianity seem less valid.

Yes I know an extreme lot about the Egyptian religion, and what they believed. Egyptology is one of my many passions. Most of the "similarities" are not really similarities at all.

I investigated that claim and found it to be based on very little evidence. The oldest stories found is closest to the biblical accounts and there is enough evidence to show that it was possible for people to have recorded stories on clay tablets when Adam was still alive.
