Abstract [en]

In this essay I examine several christian and jewish theologians views on the similaritys between, and the highly likely common history of, the biblical storys of the creation and the flood and corresponding mesopotamian myths. The goal of this exersice is to find what influences the theologians views on the subject, aswell as finding out what those views are. Examined factors include when the theologian wrote, whether he was/is jewish or christian, and whether he was/is conservativ or liberal.  The biggest factor examined in this essay seems to be whether the theologioan is conservative or liberal. Intressting to note is also that most theologians either seem to accept both the existense of similaritys and the common history or reject them both.
