    Here's a fun quote from Aron-Ra's Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism:

    A word on the evolution of Genesis: The Akkadian cuneiform tablets of Enûma Eliš are the oldest of all creation myths, dating as far back as the early Kassite era in the eighteenth century BCE. That tale is told in seven tablets, accounting for seven generations of gods. On the sixth tablet, we read that the sixth generation created man to complete creation so that the seventh generation could rest. Sound familiar?

    The roots of the concept might go back to Amun-Ra

    Amun is also sometimes spelt Amon or Amen. Some have theorized that the hebrews took this word from egypt. Others say it is simply coincidence. Whichever one, it is still pretty funny that Christians all end their prayer by calling on the name of an egyptian god.
