The writing systems were also different

The writing systems were also different; Egyptians wrote in pictures, or hieroglyphics, and the Mesopotamians wrote in cuneiform. The religion, although polytheistic in both cultures, differed in the general outlook- the Egyptians saw the afterlife as a reward, a positive experience, and the gods as holding human qualities and able to maintain relationships with humans. On the other hands, Mesopotamia’s religion was dark and gloom, with distant gods and a bleak afterlife. The differences and separations in the Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations were in the details, resulting from similar basis, but geographical and other variances alienated them. hi hi hi
