Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating Course on Ancient Creation Myth Loved this pilot and hope it becomes a full course! Like others, I would like to see it offer creation myths from other ancient cultures such as Egypt. I've studied many ancient cultures and they share commonalities but also differences that would be nice to see in one specialized course on this topic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good review! Love for the course to continue. Well, I think the headline sums it up: As this was suggested as a pilot, and I enjoyed it, I'd like to see what following lectures would have come our way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great review of two creation stories We watched this pilot tonight and enjoyed it very much. We would like to see more on this topic. Dr. Lam did a good job as presenter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Topic / Learned Presenter / Some Rough Edges I thought that the presenter adroitly presented the material. It was obvious that he has more than a familiarity with the topic. He gets five stars. However, I found the camera work to be very distracting. Why don't you just put the guy on a turntable! I'm much happier with speakers that move around. I would also have preferred if the notes were overlaid rather than abruptly appearing from the left side of the screen (and then abruptly disappearing). If I'm going to add one more criticism (and one that can possibly be shared by both the editors and the speaker) - I would have loved some genealogy charts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really interesting It was intriguing from the beginning. I really don't have any background in this subject other than the christian bible. At first I found trying to follow all the names and relationships a little confusing. I think a chart would've helped to follow along. After the first five minutes it seemed to smooth out and I could follow better. I would be interested in hearing how it evolved in the human civilization and what their hierarchy became.

Mesopotamian Creation Stories

01: Mesopotamian Creation Stories

Ancient Mesopotamia is often described as the place where civilization began. But to consider Mesopotamia as a place of beginnings also invites the question of how its inhabitants understood their own beginnings. Join Joseph Lam, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, to consider two masterpieces of literature from ancient Mesopotamia that deal with the theme of origins.
