The religion of ancient Egypt represents a cultural identity that lasted from ca. 3500 BCE to 300 CE, and included hundreds of myths, deities, and customs.
The world and men were created by Ptah, the Egyptian deity associated with creation (and sometimes craft). The deity envisioned his creation and made it into reality through the spoken word. He created the other major Egyptian deities who would rule in their respective areas.
Before the world began, eight deities called the Ogdoad (sometimes the 'Ennead') were separated into four men and four women. They lived in primedal water and rose out of the water to create what we know as land, the sun, and everything else we inhabit on Earth.
