The Ancient Egyptian Creation Story
Ancient Egyptian creation myth started before the universe came to existence, there was nothing but endless darkness, pointless water, and utter chaos. Within the darkness, there was the primordial hill a.k.a the ben-ben on which Atum-Ra resides. Atum stood in complete loneliness and through the usage of magic “Heka” he was able to breathe the life into two children Shu “God of Air” and Tefnut “Goddess of moisture” and both of them began quickly to set the universe based on the principles of life & order. Atum sent his eye to look for his children when Shu and Tefnut returned with the eye, it became known as the all-seeing eye, the eye of Ra or the Udjat eye. Their father was very happy with their return that he shed tears of absolute joy on the dark fertile earth of the Ben-Ben and gave birth to men and women, you can read more about the ancient Egyptian gods & goddesses.
