Well, as I allready pointed there is similarity in literary maner, sometimes even in plot, but there is one essential difference. And it is sense of written. There is similarity of form not similarity of teching.
Ancient Near Eastern mythologies, classical creation myths in Greek mythology envision the creation of the world as resulting from the actions of a god or gods upon already-existing primeval matter, known as chaos. That is what Panbabylonism failed to see.
In Bible we have:
God created world, (time as part of that created world)

Enuma-Eliš goes:
Situation is similar with other mentioned stories.

You could see similarities and differences. Akin to that is when in 4th centuries Church fathers and Greek philosopher polemized about Divine nature of Chrisitanity, both were using Neo-Platonist terminology Chrsitians to express Christian Theology Greek philosophers to express their own ideas.

The Eridu Genesis is a Sumerian text. It covers the creation of the universe, world, invention of cities and the flood.
