    Marduk is non other than Satan, the same as Zeus, Jupiter, of Roman/ Greek pantheons of idol gods, and Thor of Norse mythology. They all present themselves as god of light and redeemer but are nothing but False gods. This same idol god Marduk was the reason why those vicious people of Ancient Babylon built that Tower of Babel as a sign of defiance to the real God of Hebrews and Christians, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Seek for the Truth, search for God.
