    The Ancient Egyption story: At first there was only dark waters one day a hill came out of the water and it was named Ben-Ben and the first god on there was Atum. One day Atum caughed and spat out shu, the god of air, and Tefnut, the goddess of moisture. Shu and Tefnut had two children. First there was Geb,the god of earth. Then there was Nut, the goddess of sky. Shu lifted Nut so that she became a canopy over Geb. Then Nut and Geb had four children named Osiris, Isis, Seth and Nephthys. Osiris was the king of the earth and Isis was the queen. Osiris was a great king and he ruled over the earth for many years. However everything was not going well because Seth was jealouse because he wanted to be ruler of the earth, he became angrier and angrier until one day he killed Osiris. So Seth became king and Osiris went down into the underworld. Osiris and Isis had one son called Horus. Horus batteled against Seth and regained the throne. After that Horus was the king of the earth and Osris was the king of the underworld...The End

    Parents: Kishar & Anshar
    Nintu is greatly associated with water such as rivers, lakes, springs, ocean, and wells. She was also known to be a fearless woman who could be related to a war warrior.
    More Info:
    The Babylonian canon is largely derived from Sumerian mythology. This was written in Akkadian, a Semitic language, using cuneiform script on clay tablets. Most texts known today are copies made in scribal schools by student scribes, likely at a time when Akkadian was no longer the spoken language in Babylonia and serious belief in the myths had faded amongst educated people. Some Babylonian texts were even translations into Akkadian from the Sumerian language of earlier texts, though the names of some deities were changed in Babylonian texts. Some Babylonian deities and myths are unique to that culture, however, such as the god **Marduk** and the Enûma Elish, a creation epic.

    The Abaluyia
    [5]In this myth the Abaluyia peolpe belive that man was created by god so the sun would have something to shine on. After the creation of man he created plants and animals so man would have a food source. God then created woman so man would have someone whom he could talk with.
    Connection
    These stories are all connected in one way or another. First of all, they all believe in one god. While they cry in their description of how this occurred. and why, they all serve the same purpose. Through their explanation of how this occurred, one can see what they view their place in the world to be. By answering their questions, these stories served as both a comforting basis for the African people and a way of connecting to future generations. As such, these tales of creation are works of truly great literature.
