Enuma Elish- beginning there are two primordial beings: Apsu and Tiamat Apsu and Tiamat are two types of water- Apsu is sweet sky water, and Tiamat are bitter waters that become the seas One is destroyed after the other by the different head gods Apsu gets destroyed by Ea/Enki, and TIamat gets defeated by Marduk By defeating the big chaos monster, Ea and Marduk become the head Gods. Before them there was Anu, who was a sky God but he’s gone now. Common theme: usually some sort of distant sky god that gets replaced by a thunder or storm god who is more active and in charge, and that storm god established himself by defeating some sort of chaos that has a dragon or sea form Older sky God who is removed is referred to as the Deus Otiosus They get annoyed at all of human’s noise ,and Enki (who created us) wants to protect us and calls other Gods to stop Apsu and becomes head of the Gods. He uses magic to bind circle and Apsu in a sleep and then slays him and his body

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
