With all the other Anu out of the picture, it didn’t take long for Ishtar and Yahweh to start distrusting each other. Their paranoia and need to control was as strong as ever, and there was no one left to focus it on but each other.

They went by many names in many different cultures, but their signature was always clear. She was the goddess of sexuality, of “love”, and of war: her ways were clever, manipulative yet savage and bloodthirsty. He liked to call himself the father, allfather, or king of the gods: angry, jealous and more stupid than her, he tended to favour brawn over brains.

Neither of them was strong enough to come out the victor.
