Tiamat In Mesopotamian Religion (Sumerian, Assyrian, Akkadian and Babylonian), Tiamat is a chaos monster, a primordial goddess of the ocean, mating with Abzû (the god of fresh water) to produce younger gods. It is suggested that there are two parts to the Tiamat mythos, the first in which Tiamat is 'creatrix', through a "Sacred marriage" between salt and fresh water, peacefully creating the cosmos through successive generations.

The internet is just knowledge and opinions, like everything else in our minds, both are filled with lies. I feel that a better way to find faith is not to believe anything. 1. Don't believe anything i tell you. 2. Don't believe anything anyone else tells you. 3. Don't believe anything you tell yourself. The truth will withstand the test of skeptisicm, Know the truth and be set free.
