"Mythical Attempts At Cosmological Science"
In Egyptian mythology, Hathor (Pronounced Hwt-Hor) (Egyptian for house of Horus) was originally a personification of the Milky Way, which was seen as the milk that flowed from the udders of a heavenly cow.
The Milky Way was seen as a waterway in the heavens, sailed upon by both the sun deity and the moon, leading the ancient Egyptians to describe it as The Nile in the Sky. Due to this, and the name mehturt, she was identified as responsible for the yearly inundation of the Nile. Another consequence of this name is that she was seen as a herald of imminent birth, as when the amniotic sac breaks and floods its waters, it is a medical indicator that the child is due to be born extremely soon.
The first version of the myth has the entity arising from the waters after the interaction as a mound of dirt, the Milky Way, which was deified as Hathor. In the myth an egg was laid upon this mound by a celestial bird. The egg contained Ra. In the original version of this variant, the egg is laid by a cosmic goose.

Directed to: Walleye, Egofftib and Maximus...
I think I see a misunderstanding regarding the whole "Noah for face value" controversy.
When egofftib said that you can't take it for face value, it was on the premiss that there is no evidence of it.
If there was evidence, I think egofftib would agree that there is more to it than some parable, that there may also be some historical implications.
He (egofftib) brought the Noahs ark story because off the top of his head, that would seem to be one of the most incredulous stories in the bible that could not be taken for face value, especially if it didn't come with some evidence.
But Walleye, if there is evidence, Noahs ark isn't a good example, and take my example of circumcision. How it says to cut the 'foreskin of your heart' - when we know that we'd die from that, so we re-interpret
*egofftib, i hope you don't mind that I spoke for you...

but now adays they are left alone because they are such a smallx100 minority, they had been treated like this in the ancient times because Muslims were'nt a majority, so that law was made that time to save the small minorities of Muslims.
