Here's a creation myth I wrote. Figured I'd let you read so you can comment, critique, insult, kill me... ignore the last one.
Just FYI; I'm going to bed right after I post this and have to work early in the morning so I won't be able to comment until late tomorrow night.
Okay, see y'all when I'll see y'all!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE FOUNDINGS OF HEAVEN AND HELL
In the beginning, God saw the Darkness. It extended forever in all directions. All was Dark.
The Shadow surrounded God. It was chaotic, void, and empty.
God was displeased with the Shadow and spoke,
The Light came forth and spread all across the Darkness. It filled up all. The Shadow fell back and retreated to a dark corner.
The Light surrounded God. It was bright, energetic, and beautiful.
God was pleased with the Light and spoke,
Beings emerged from the Light—beings made of the Light itself.
The beings came into the presence of God and were frightened. God’s brilliance was far too great for these beings.
God was displeased with the beings’ fright. So he spoke,
The beings closed their eyes and were finally able to stand in God’s almighty presence.
But some of the beings did not want to close their eyes. They wanted to see the full glory of God for themselves.
God was displeased by their rebelliousness. So he spoke,
A small tremor rocked the Darkness. The beings who kept their eyes open were cast out of God’s presence.
A great golden gate was formed to keep the fallen beings from entering God’s presence again.
To differentiate between the lands on each side of the gate, the land within was called “Heaven,” while the land without the gate was called “Hell.” THE FOUNDING OF THE WORLD
Angered by their banishment, the fallen beings tore into the Light and some of the Shadow seeped into the Light.
The Shadow darkened and corrupted the Light it came in contact with. The two merged and became solid matter.
Some became cool as water.
Some became hard as rock.
Some became fast as wind.
The matter began to warp the Light. It began to attack the beings—including the fallen.
God was displeased with the matter and spoke,
The beings came down and placed the matter in place.
They gathered the rock and made land. They gathered the water and made the ocean. They gathered the wind and made the sky.
They placed the sky above and the land below. But the land did not want to stay in the beings’ desired state and rose up and floated on the ocean.
The beings made the earth to sit between Heaven and Hell. So they made it flat. But the ocean began to fall off the sides. So they took parts of the land and create a vast wall of stone to hold the ocean in.
God was pleased with the world and spoke,
Hell was full of a massive quake as God placed it in the darkest depths of this new world the fallen, themselves, created.
Heaven was finally free of rebelliousness and became perfect.THE FOUNDING OF ANIMALS
The Shadow still wanted to destroy.
The newly formed ocean was the most violent. It crashed against itself. Tides rose and fell.
In the depths of the ocean, beings began to form.
Ocean-dwelling beings filled the waters. They grew, ate, multiplied, and killed.
Some of the beings left the ocean and moved onto the land.
Land-dwelling beings covered the land. They grew, ate, multiplied, and killed.
Some of the beings learned to leave the land and moved into the sky.
Sky-dwelling beings filled the sky. They grew, ate, multiplied, and killed.
God was displeased with the chaotic form of beings and spoke,
The beings of the Light came down and ordered all life.
They moved the land around to keep some beings of the Shadow from another. They gave them of the same kind similar skills and abilities.
To differentiate the beings of the Light from these beings of the Shadow, God named the beings of Heaven “Thinkers,” and the beings of the world “Animals.”
Despite his heart was heavy from the imperfectness of creation, God was pleased with the world and spoke,
A great ball of fire formed in the center of the sky. It lit the entire world below.
God was pleased with the sun and spoke,
A great ball of white rock formed in the sky.
God made the sun and moon rise and fall to give day and night so the Animals could rest.THE FOUNDING OF MAN
The fallen Thinkers looked up and saw the Animals living.
They grew envious. They wanted those Animals to worship the Thinkers and God.
With all their might, they stole a portion of the Light and created a Black Fire in their domain.
They used this Fire and granted intelligence to a group of Animals that resembled the Thinkers the most.
These ape-like Animals thought for themselves.
God was displeased with these Thinking-Animals and spoke,
Five of the most powerful Thinkers left Heaven and went down to the world to teach these Thinking-Animals.
In the confusion, four of the most powerful fallen Thinkers escaped and rose up into the world to distort the Thinkers’ plan.
The Thinkers and fallen Thinkers became the Nine Wizards.
To differentiate between these Thinking-Animals and the Thinkers, God named the Thinking-Animals “Man,” and the Thinkers “Spirits.”THE FIRST WAR AND THE FOUNDINGS OF THE DARK LANDS AND THE EMPIRE
Man followed the laws given to them by the Nine Wizards.
The Men who followed the four Fallen Wizards were taught to harm other Men.
They learned to steal, cheat, lie, hurt, and murder.
The Men who followed the five Wizards of God waged war against the Men who followed the Four.
The war waged for many years. Billions of Men were killed.
God was displeased with this war. He spoke,
The Men who obeyed the Fallen Wizards were imprisoned in four lands. One was a swamp. One was a volcano. One was a jungle. One was a glacier.
These four lands were called The Dark Lands. Its residents were the Barbarians.
The Men who obeyed the Wizards of Light were given grand lands between the four Dark Lands. Some were given forests. Some were given plains. Some were given mountains. Some
were given the oceans. Some were given the desert.
These five lands were called the Bright Empire. Its residents were the Imperials.
God rose up great mountains and valleys and obstacles to keep the Barbarians from reaching the Imperials.
God decreed that the four Fallen Wizards stay in the Dark Lands while the Wizards of God stay in the Bright Empire.
God saw the peace of the world and was pleased.
