Later influence paragraph is vague and incomplete
It is written than Babylonian traditions/myths/religions influenced a lot of others cultures (Semites, Greeks, Romans, etc). But there is something that I dont see and it tickles me. If :
- semites (including proto-hebrews) were a big part of the tribes that composed Babylonia,
- before being under a "unified" monarchy, Babylonia had been influenced by its tribal origins,
- Sumeria and Babylonia were among the most advanced/developed civilizations of their times,
Shall we conclude that these semites traditions/myths/religions were carried out by those tribes, then developped to form the so-called Mesopotamian religion ? After all, Babylonians could just be the first to have written them down. (unfortunately for us, oral tradition was the rule before the alphabet !)
