"IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."-- Book of Genesis

The Genesis creation narrative, found in the first two chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible, is one of several Ancient Mesopotamian creation myths, differing from the others in its monotheistic outlook. It is part of the biblical canons of Judaism and Christianity and describes the beginning of the earth and life, and the creation of humanity in the image of God.
