  2. 2. RELIGION Religion has been a huge factor in the worlds development and meaning. Most of the religion we see in modern day time was started in ancient civilizations.

People in Ancient Mesopotamia believed that a god named Marduk killed the mother god named Tiamat. Marduk then used half of Tiamat’s body to form earth and the other half to form paradise(heaven) and nether(hell).
  5. 5. EGYPT Egyptian religion is based on a creation myth that tells of an egg that appeared on the ocean. When the egg hatched, out came Ra, god of the sun. As a result, ancient Egyptians became worshippers of the sun and of the nine original deities, most of whom were the children and grandchildren of Ra.
