A Creation Myth II

So all was happy and cheery in the world. That is until the gods got bored and so they mad angels and demons just for fun. But they were single minded beings and so served to provide single minded entertainment. And the gods got bored. Now even the gods are mortal, in a sense. They are immortal, but death will take them too, one day, it claims. So being mortal, they made a mistake. They felt compassion and pity and made. Being that were made unto their own likeness. Humans they called them, or Children of Adam. You see both these words mean the same thing in the language of the gods, children of pity or being of compassion, depending on which god you are. And so they made humans and gave them knowledge and other gifts. Thus the gods made their own bane.
