That's an interesting interpretation. Have you located the source?

comment In what language is the oldest available text of Genesis?
Only the first chapter of Genesis bears any resemblance to the Enuma Elish, and even there the similarity is mainly structural. If Genesis 1 was derived at all from the Enuma Elish, it was more like a parody than "the same story line with a different perspective".

comment Internal Evidence of Authorship of the Fourth Gospel
Yes, and that would be consistent with someone who spent time with Peter during Jesus' ministry, when he was known as both "Simon" and "Peter".

I also touch a little on internal evidence in my answer to Is John 21 a later addition to the Fourth Gospel?

comment Internal Evidence of Authorship of the Fourth Gospel
Yes, the authors call him "Peter", but when they record another person speaking to him, he is called "Simon". It seems likely that he was still usually known as Simon during Jesus' earthly ministry. So the use of "Simon Peter" in the fourth gospel does not necessarily imply that the author knew Peter before meeting Jesus--it might simply indicate that he know Peter before Jesus' death.

comment Internal Evidence of Authorship of the Fourth Gospel
I'm not convinced that the use of the name Simon indicates knowing him before he received the name of Peter: All four gospels record that he was often called Simon long after he received his new name (see, e.g., Matthew 16:17, Mark 14:37, Luke 22:31, Luke 24:34, John 21:15 ).
