I think you're not fully grasping what you grasp either. You might want to
consider what your claims sound like to people reading them. Here's the
<<But Milton's narrative is not in the Bible even slightly.>>
Milton's PL had an Adam and Eve. Genesis had an Adam and Eve. Milton's
Adam and Eve ate a forbidden fruit. Genesis's Adam and Eve ate a forbidden
fruit. Milton's PL had a monotheistic deity who created the universe.
Genesis has a monotheistic deity who created the universe. I could go on
and on, but it's already getting very silly.
If you mean that many of the details of Milton's narrative are not present
in Scripture, I agree.
If you mean that many of the details of Milton's narrative contradict
Scripture, I think that's possible, but we'd need to discuss them on a case
by case basis.
But "not even slightly"? That's far too much.
