    Default paraphrasing help

    hi, i need help the following paraphrasing..thanks in advance.

    The Epic of Gilgamesh disproves God's consistent and congruent plan of redemption by introducing a plant at the bottom of the sea that gives eternal life when eaten. It also assumes an absurdity: that Gilgamesh could swim to the bottom of this sea and uproot the plant. It is clearly full of fiction while the biblical account is not.

    "Paraphrasing" simply means to put something into your own words. When you share a story you've heard from a friend, unless you repeat it word for word then you've paraphrased it. So what you need to do here is read the passage and then explain it in your own words as you would if you were describing it a friend or associate. For example: "The Epic of Gilgamesh is not logical because no one can swim to the bottom of the ocean...."
