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

Eridu Genesis is incomplete and it is Babyiloonian text in Sumerian language. Nevertheless, even with similarites, that does not mean Old Testament religion is derived from Mesopotamian. Similar stories, similar motives, literary borowings, but again completly different theology. Mesopotamian myth shows their Gods living in ways of humans and concerned because overpopulation of Earth, Biblical story shows that only people faithfull to God will survive. Again essential difference.
