In Ancient Egypt, the temples were all constructed from stone because the gods were to live in these temples for all of eternity and lack of wood. The temple walls were covered with inscriptions and images. They were often historical events, such as important events at the temple or of the pharaoh’s reign. The Temple of Dendur depicted Pihor worshipping Isis and Pedesi worshipping Osiris as well as Emperor Augustus praying and offering the gods. Traditionally, the drawings would’ve been of the pharaoh.
He made land to stand on and when he was feeling lonely he created his son and daughter who were named Shu the god of air and Tefnut the goddess of mist. Both gods were given their roles in the balance of chaos that was a form of a feather named Maat, and they gave birth to Geb the earth and Nut the sky. Geb and Nut had been together from the very beginning until Shu sent the sky god to the heavens. Geb made rain to grow plants on the earth, and she gave birth to the sun. Shu and Tefnut gave birth to more gods like Isis, Seth, Thoth, and Osiris.
The great pyramids of Egypt are now one of the amazing seven wonders of the world. These pyramids that still stand today shed the light on how life was once lived thousands of years ago. It has been learned that the pyramids were built with the arrangement of the stars and were aligned with those of Orion. The reason behind why these specific stars were the main focus on the pyramid, is because Osiris was known to be the God of death, rebirth, and the afterlife. Their purpose for building these massive structures was to serve as tombs for the deceased pharaohs and queens.

Robert J Sawyer said. I agree with Robert because if matter created matter which makes no sense whatsoever, what happened? It 's impossible for one individual substance nonliving to create something nonliving and living. Which leads back to my first paragraph in which GOD created Adam and Eve. My first reason going against what was said on my part Is stated by Olaf Stapleton in which he states, "The microseism was pregnant with a germ of a proper time and proper space, and all kinds of cosmical beings.
Zoroastrianism is recognized by most historians as the first monotheistic religion of the world. Zoroastrians believe that Ahura Mazda, whose name means “Wise Lord,” is the true god and creator of all things good. They also believe that his rival, Angra Mainyu, is the root of evil. Zoroastrianism was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iran approximately 3,500 years ago. It was the predominant religion of the world for nearly 1,000 years, and was the official religion of Persia from 600 BC to 650 AD.
In the priestly narrative, Genesis one, the order of creation fall in order of light/dark, sky, dry land, vegetation, stars/sun, animals (sea monsters and fish), land animals, and humans. Humans are created last but another difference in short is that male and females were birthed at the same time unlike Genesis two where Eve came from Adam. In Genesis two, Adam is made, however; in Genesis one verse twenty-seven, God does not give man a name “male and female he created” (Coogan, 2010, p. 13). He then makes the Tree of Knowledge (good and evil) and Tree of Life. After giving Adam land and animals in Genesis two, God states that Adam needs someone at his side to help him “but for the man there was not found a helper as his partner” (Coogan, 2010, p. 14).
Young-earth believes that a Being, also known as God spoke everything into creation. God created our solar system from nothing where nebular hypothesis there needed to be something to create from. Conclusion How old is the earth we live on? Well hopefully whoever reads this will have a better understanding on the two comparison of Nebular Hypothesis (Old-earth secular view) and Six-Day Creation (Young-earth view). One will never know truly how old the earth is because none of us lived during the time of creation of this solar
In the Inca creation myth Pachacamac, the sun, created the first humans from the stone of an enormous mountain rock. These humans were pitiful and knew nothing about the world, nor how to survive in it, so Pachacamac sent his son and daughter down to Earth to teach them how to live. The son taught men how to plant, plow, and build, while the daughter taught women how to prepare food and weave. The Mayan creation myth created humans to praise Tepeu and Gucumatz. The first humans were made of wet clay, but soon after they crumbled to pieces.
An example of Egyptians valuing death/ and afterlife is that they made pyramids for their Pharaohs when they die and mummified them for the after life. In the article, “Tombs” it said, “These monumental pyramids built for the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure housed the royal mummies and their worldly effects thought to protect and be used by the kings in their afterlife,” (Staff ). The Egyptians had many beliefs about afterlife. They believed that when you die a part your soul continues on, so they built pyramids to protect the Pharaoh and other royals. They also used mummification to harness their body.
