  • Name Ptah Seker Osiris
    3,855 words
    Egyptian creation stories tell of several variations of how the world was composed. According to one variation, the ocean was the only thing in existence. Then the sun, Ra, came out of an egg (or a flower in some versions) that appeared on the surface of the water. Ra created four children. They were the gods Shu and Geb and the goddesses Tefnut and Nut. Shu and Tefnut became the air, who stood on Geb, the earth, and held up Nut, who became the sky. Ra ruled over all. It was not uncommon for sib...
  • 23 Hours And 20 Minutes In Joshua
    713 words
    The Longest Day Few of God's miracles cause protests in the 'scientific' community like the account of Joshua's long day - when God made the sun and moon to stand still. But science and modern technology have done more to verify this fact than they have to refute it. Common sense would say it is impossible for such a major disruption to occur and not totally destroy the precise, perfect balance in the solar system. But given a God, who created the heavens and the earth, who established the rotat...
  • God In Ancient Egyptian History
    1,850 words
    Was Amun-Ra the Most Powerful Egyptian God Through extensive research of ancient Egyptian history, we see that there was a change in religion, and even lifestyle. The king of Egypt, Akhenaton, made a sudden change during his rule in the religious support of the Egyptian gods. With Akhenaton's preoccupation with new ideas and religious ideals, he cost Egypt its proud empire. We see that Amun-Ra was truly the most important and most powerful god in ancient Egypt. Akhenaton's changing the religious...
  • Aztec Myth Of Creation The Fifth Sun
    4,368 words
    Introduction to the People of the Sun The sun is a visible, astronomical fact - "the one immutable fact of existence, the source of all life on earth". It journeys overhead from east to west by day, dips into darkness, and by night travels underground west to east to rise triumphantly again at dawn - the start of a new day (Waters 203). The sun has been the focal point of energy and worship in many cultures throughout the world. The Aztecs were one culture that used the light of the sun to trium...
  • Creation Of The Sun And Moon
    1,211 words
    Myths about the Sun and Moon The sun and the moon are powerful beings that bring life and death to all living creatures. They control when it is day or night, which season it is, and the weather. They fascinate humans and a considerable amount of mythology has been dedicated to the creation of the sun and moon and why or how they travel across the sky during the day and night. This paper will discuss and compare some of these myths and the gods attributed to their care and existence. The sun and...
  • Osiris Wife Isis
    2,454 words
    What caught our attention about Egyptian gods was that there were so many of them and they each served their own purpose. The Egyptian gods each were used to explain a certain aspect of nature, such as the sun, stars, or rain. Nut and Geb The sky is Nut's body, arching from horizon to horizon. Geb is the Earth, lying beneath her. During the day, Nut and Geb are separated, but each evening Nut comes down to meet Geb and this causes darkness. If storms came during the day, it was believed that Nut...
  • Day Of Beda's Coffee Party
    470 words
    "The Sun' is a story that presents nature in both its hostile and benevolent aspects. The events of the story suggest that those who are most dependent upon the natural world and who experience its greatest deprivations may also experience its greatest joys. The opening paragraphs of the story identify the characters and the setting– a wild and rocky region in Sweden, where the women try to wrest a meager harvest out of the land. In this region, which is overshadowed by a mountain, the soi...
