Egyptian Mythology Creation Story

Before the invention of time, the universe was full of endless dark waters and swirling chaos. In the darkness was a primordial hill Known as the ben-ben on which rose a great god Ra (Atum) who felt lonely and decided to create life using his magic known as Heka. He gave life to two children Shu (god of air) and Tefnut (goddess of moisture), they rapidly began creating the principles of life and order. They began building the world, while leaving their father Ra on the Ben-Ben in the middle of chaos and sadness so he sent his eyes in search for them and when they returned with his eyes, in a moment of absolute happiness, he shed tears of joy that fertilized the earth of the Ben-Ben and gave birth to men and women. After the creation of humans, Shu and Tefnut created Geb (the earth) and Nut (the sky). Despite Geb and nut being brother and sister, they fell in love which angered Ra so he ordered Shu to separate them for eternity but it was too late as Nut was pregnant with Geb’s children. In anger, Ra ordered Nut not to give birth in any month of any year so the god of knowledge “Thoth” gambled the moon and was able to add five extra days to the official calendar of 360 days where Nut was able to give birth to Osiris, Isis, Set, Nephthys, and Horus the elder. Osiris shown himself to be a judicious and thoughtful god was given the rule of the world. In the end, Ra will wipe the world out and return to the primeval, everything will be gone except for Osiris. There is a possibility for a new creation to replace the old world.
