In the beginning the gods and I decided to create other beings. We debated on how they should act, how their mortality is handled, and in what conditions can they live. Each god was given an assignment on what to handle. Of course I gave everyone their duties and led the order of creation. The creation began with the formation of the Earth but was formless and empty.
El: Let there be light!!! It looks good. Now I will form darkness and it will be separate from the light. The light shall be called day and the Dark will be called night. We will create more as the days pass since it will set a precedent of time for our creation. Each day will repeat to create order.
Baal: Father, we must create land and water so there will be livable space for these beings. If you expect order then we must do this.
El: You are right my son. This will be done in the second day. Gather the other gods so we may create all of these living beings.
And so the first day passed. A very short day to be honest. Looking back at it I thought just creating light and darkness was just lazy. But it was the right thing to set precedent. Besides we weren't done.
So the second day came and it was a little bit more eventful.
El: Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water. The vault is to be separate from water under the vault from the water above it. And it is so. this will be called Sky. Baal I want you to pour the water with your storm clouds.
Ba'al Hadad: Let the water pour from the heavens and it shall provide drink and life. It will be clean and pure.
Okay I lied a bit. The first two days were boring. I mean Baal's a good kid but again we're not all powerful. We may be immortal but we don't have power over everything. The third day would come and we would begin to form life.
El: Now it's time to create the fruit of the Earth. Dagon, I want you to create grain and fertile crops. Nikkal-wa-Ib, I want you to create fruits and orchards.
Dagon: Let the land produce vegetation.
Nikkal-Wa-Ib: let the seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed that it will produce, according to their various kinds.
The fourth day came and my child Shapash was responsible of creating the sun and Shamayim would be responsible of creating the moon. As such I would have them both be in charge of the heavens as they would control these two lights. They would agree to share the day. One half will be ruled by the sun and the other half will be by the moon. Shachar and Shalim will of course be responsible for raising Dusk and Dawn.
The sixth day came and this is where we would finish off the creation. I would be responsible for creating the animals of the land, sea, and skies. It looked nice but we all decided to create one more set of beings. They would be called man. But that's for another day to tell.
So this is the part talking about the first version of creation. I wanted to talk about man in more specific detail since just talking about that part would not make sense in this version of creation. You know what I mean if you've read Genesis.
I won't do the whole bible in detail since this will focus on Yahweh and El. It will focus on their thoughts behind the scenes. I doubt I will do the New Testament since there isn't anything in it that people don't already know about deities.
No prob. I always answer these type of questions. Mind you I'm not going to do the whole begats list because I think that's the most unbearable part of the bible. But I will talk about some of the more confusing events like Noah's Ark, Abraham, and Exodus.
The only part of the Bible I skipped on my attempts to read the horrid thing was the begats. I actually found myself snoozing. I can't imagine what it was like having to re-write the lists over and over as the monks would have done.
