Before moving on with the Genesis narrative, here are the major points of comparison with the Hittite Creation Epics, Mesopotamian Creation Stories, as well as Egyptian and Greek Myths:

(1) Kumarbis, like Marduk-Bel is a complex god/planet and consists of many elements:

(a) Adad/Teshub the Storm God (Horus the Elder) comes forth from the “body” of Kumarbis. In other words, Adad was attached to Marduk/Kumarbis prior to the solar system defining collision. The prominence of the Hittite Storm God Adad/Teshub (proto-Mars) also mirrors that of Adad and Horus the Elder in the Mesopotamian and Egyptian stories, and again points to an extra-solar system (galactic) bias related to the importance of Ursa Minor, the Storm God constellation.

(b) Ullikummis the son of Adad (Horus the Younger son of Horus the Elder) is also very prominent.  There is much concern for the safety of Ullikummis and he is hidden away in a marsh, even as Horus the Younger was hidden away in his youth. Ullikummis is also small like the younger Horus, but exceptionally strong (as if made of “diorite”).  As in the Epic of Gilgamesh, he is the human/mortal element of the divine Marduk planetary complex.  In the Hittite version, he is even said to have been born of a human, i.e., a commoner mother, which makes him the Hittite analog of Hercules. Ullikummis is fashioned as a “rival to the gods,” which also relates to the larger role of Marduk.  

(c) Ubelluris is a third member of the Hittite Marduk, and this name clearly evokes Marduk’s epithet of Bel.  Mythographers liken him to the Greek Atlas, which further corresponds to the Egyptian god Geb and Hebrew Reuben eldest son of Jacob.  We have previously idenitified this aspect of Marduk as the future planet Mercury.  

The Hittite tale places the little god Ullikummis at the right shoulder of Ubelluris (prior to the impact that led to the dissolution of Kumarbis/Marduk), which seems to relate to a Biblical epithet of Horus the Younger, that being, Benjamin the “son of the right (side/hand/shoulder).”

The role of the "right arm" in this planetary battle is also glorified in the Biblical Song of Moses (Marduk):

"Thy right hand, O Lord, glorious in power, thy right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.  In the greatness of thy majesty thou overthrowest thy adversaries; thou sendest forth thy fury, it consumes them like stubble.  At the blast of thy nostrils the water piled up, the floods stood up in a heap; the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea." -Exodus 15:6-8 (RSV)

(d) The Dragon Illuyankas is perhaps a fourth member of the Kumarbis group, or simply a name for Kumarbis or one of the main constituents, such as Ubelluris.  There is a clear correspondence between the “Dragon” and characterizations of Apophis in Egypt and Bel of Babylon.

(2) As in Genesis 4, the Hittite version begins with the “killing” of Alal (Abel) by Anus (Cain). This is followed by the castration of Anus by Kumarbis, which is also a central theme in the Biblical version. Cain (Anus) complains that the blow to his manhood is more than he can bear. This metaphor carried over into Greek mythology, as well. Chronos (Saturn/Abel) is said to have castrated Uranus (Neptune/Cain) after which he was in turn overthrown by Zeus (Jupiter).  Note the inversion of the Cain and Abel story in the Greek version, i.e., Saturn ambushing Neptune instead of the other way around!
