I had read a lot of these myths before in different forms. Most notably Edith Hamilton's Mythology. Some similarities with Genesis that I noted, in both the Earth is created from Chaos, In both the God(s) are judgemental, In both Man is created first and exists in a blissful state until God / Zeus creates or orders created a woman who leads man into sin.
