This is the Summerian Creation.
In the beginning, it was just darkness, and the goddess Nammu.
I'm so drunk
Let's create s-s-some humans!
I'm so stupid!
She gave birth to Anki, who was the Universe. Together, Anki and Nammu made heaven and Earth.
Enlil made his parents into Mother Earth and the Sky. Then, Enlil and Ki joined together to make the god of the water, vegetation and wisdom, and the lord of the universe. Enki then made all the land and animals.
One day, all of the gods got drunk, and created humans. These humans were weak, and very stupid. The gods were very drunk, and did not see what they had made.
Soon, the humans that the gods made were causing problems, so they decided to drown all the humans.
All the humans were drowned except for Ziusudra and his wife. Enki told them to make an ark so that they wouldn't drown. Once all the water was gone, Ziusudra and his wife made a new generation of good people.😀
