Just How Similar Is The Mikvah To Baptism?

Well, in Christianity, baptism removes original sin.

Now, check out what I found about the mikvah while browsing the Internet:

"Immersion in the mikvah has offered a gateway to purity ever since the creation of man. The Midrash relates that after being banished from Eden, Adam sat in a river that flowed from the garden. This was an integral part of his teshuvah (repentance) process, of his attempt at return to his original perfection." -
