Before anything there was Nun; The ocean, it streached forever into the darkness. Then there was a voice heard in silence that said "I am Atum". By saying it outloud the God Atum created himself and appeared. His eye shined and sent out rays of light that cut through the darkness making the water glitter. As Atum flew across Nun he grew tired, looking for a place to rest; he spoke, " There must be somewhere" and a smooth mountain rose from the water. Once rested Atum created Shu (God of wind/breath) and Tefnut (Goddess of water) telling them they will make the world. "Your children will be the earth and the sky. But before you have children go and explore for you are the gods."
Atum waited for Shu and Tefnut while they flew off. Shu and Tefnut got lost and weary out amongst the dark waters of Nun. Atum grew impatient waiting and sent his Eye to go look for them, he waited behind in the blinding darkness.
While waiting for the Eye to return with Shu and Tefnut, Atum grew another eye and slowly he was able to see the hill and the ocean all around him again. Still he sat waiting for their return and soon he saw a glimmer of light off in the distance and he knew it was the Eye returning with Shu and Tefnut.
Upon their return Atum spoke to the (first) Eye and told it that it would travel through the sky and be the world's light, it would be called the Sun and the warmth it cast down on the world would awaken Ra! Ra would be the greatest of the Gods, the Sun God!
As Atum celebrated the return of Shu and Tefnut he cried with joy, and his tears became the first people of the world. He told the land to rise and the trees, flowers and crops to grow, and then he created animals to herd and hunt.
He spoke to the people he created, asking them to care for the world as he cared for them and they sang in praise to Atum, for he was the one who had given them life.
If I've gotten any of this wrong or you've got more to add please do. We are just learning about other religion's creation stories and thought we'd share here.
