The Sacred books and early literature of the East : with historical surveys of the chief writings of each nation ... by Charles F Horne( Book )

Includes the famous Pyramid Texts, Sacred Books of Early Literature of the East provides historical context and accurate translations of creation myths from Ancient Egypt. Pulling from the Pyramid Texts, four of the dozens of creation myths are accepted as the most popular. These tales were associated with cults of particular gods in specific Egyptian cities: Hermopolis, Heliopolis, Memphis and Thebes. The Hermopolis myth focused on the nature of the universe before any creation began. Eight gods represented the qualities of the ocean. These gods were viewed as water dwelling creatures and separated into male and female groups, where the men were depicted as frogs and the women as snakes. After a large conflict erupted between the two groups, a pyramid appeared and the sun emerged, lighting the world. In Heliopolis, creation was attributed to Atum, a god who created other deities who represented and took care of particular properties or items in the world. Atum made Shu and Tefnut, the air gods, by spitting and sneezing. Shu and Tefnut in turn produced the earth god, Geb, and the sky goddess, Nut. These two had four children to complete the necessities of creation: Osiris, the god of fertility; Isis, the goddess of motherhood; Set, the god of male sexuality; and Nephthys, the female complement to Set. Ptah, the god of craftsmen, was the chief creator in the myth from Memphis. Ptah was able to visualize his creations in his mind, translate his ideas into words, and allow the physical product to appear. In this way, the god produced other gods, man, woman and all other things. Theban theology states that Amun created the world and all things in it, but was actually separate from the world, making the other gods part of him and leading to his ultimate crowning as supreme god of the Egyptian pantheon

To the sun? Off on a comet! by Jules Verne( )

9 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story starts with a comet called Gallia, that touches the Earth in its flight and collects a few small chunks of it. The disaster occurred on January 1 of the year 188x in the area around Gibraltar. On the territory that was carried away by the comet there remained a total of thirty-six people of French, English, Spanish and Russian nationality. These people did not realize at first what had happened, and considered the collision an earthquake. They first noticed weight loss: the adjutant of Captain Servadac Ben Zoof to his amazement jumped twelve meters high. Zoof with Servadac also soon noticed that the alternation of day and night is shortened to six hours, that east and west changed sides, and that water begins to boil at 66 degrees Celsius, from which they rightly deduced that atmosphere became thinner and pressure dropped. At the beginning of their stay in Gallia they noticed the Earth with the Moon, but thought it was an unknown planet. Other important information was obtained through their research expedition with a ship, which the comet also took. During the voyage they discovered a mountain chain blocking the sea, which they initially considered to be the Mediterranean Sea and then they found the island of Formentera (before the catastrophe a part of the Balearic Islands). where they found a French astronomer Palmyrin Rosette, who helped them to solve all the mysterious phenomena. They were all on the comet which was discovered by Rosette a year ago and predicted a collision course with Earth, but no one believed the astronomer, because a layer of thick fog at the time prevented astronomical observations in other places
