Marriage and divorce

  1. 1. The ancient Mesopotamian’s believed in hundreds of gods. They believed that for every person there was a god to protect them. Like a guardian angel or in this case guardian god. But they also had seven major gods they were Anu/An- father of the gods and father or the sky, Enlil- god of the air, Utu- sun god and lord of truth and justice, Nanna- the moon god, Inanna - the goddess of love and war, Ninhursag- goddess of the earth, and finally Enki- god of fresh water and lord of wisdom and magic.
  2. 2. Like the Mesopotamian’s the Egyptian’s believed in many gods so I will only tell you a couple. Amun was one of the most powerful gods in ancient Egypt. Anubis was the god of embalming and death. Bes was the protector of pregnant women, newborn babies and family. Khnum was a creator god, as well as god of the innundation. Shu held up the figure of Nut so that the earth and the sky were separated. Osiris was the god of the dead as well as the underwood. Nut was the sky- goddess, whose body created a vault or canopy over the earth.
  3. 3. Canada has many religions. But Christianity is the most popular. 67% of Canada is Christian. But in Canada 24% of Canada also have no religion. Religion is slowly declining in Canada. However the national anthem (in both languages) and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms both refer to god. Also in 1957 the parliament declared thanksgiving a day of general thanks to god. Most Canadian’s also celebrate Easter which is said to be when Jesus (many Christian’s call him “God the Son”)was resurrected from the dead.
