    Khnum, in Egyptian, means molder. Khnum is usually shown as a ram-headed deity working at his potter’s wheel, fashioning men and all living creatures out of clay.
    A passage from an Egyptian creation legend by Khnum follows:

    The mud of the Nile, heated to excess by the Sun, fermented and generated, without seeds, the races of men and animals.
    Passages of the Bible leave no doubt about the belief in the concept of the Divine Potter. Genesis, 2:7 mentions the material used to make man, the same type of substance used by Khnum:

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    The Koran copied from the Egyptian too when they said Adam was made from "Black Mud"
