Project #41956 - Cosmic Creation Myths Across Cultures

Write a 700 word paper about two creation myths from this week's readings that address the following:

 

  • Pick at least two creation myths from two different cultures. For ideas, refer to this week's readings.  These should be specific stories such as "Out of the Blue", "Genesis", etc. from Myth and Knowing, or any of the stories assigned from the World Mythology text.

 

  • Which world or worlds, such as sky, earth, and underworld, are represented in the myths you chose? What are the characteristics of these worlds? 
  • Describe the creators. Are the creators male or female, and of what significance is gender? Describe what they created, including the steps or cycles of creation. Also, include descriptions of any destroyers or destruction if applicable.

 

  • Include the role of cosmic occurrences or natural phenomena, such as celestial bodies, floods, rain, wind, and fire.

 

  • Compare the creators, creations, the steps or cycle of creation, and the cosmic elements of the two myths. What are the similarities and differences?

 

Important:  Do not simply summarize two myths from the readings.  Read the myths, understand them, and use specific details from them to address the required elements above. 

 

Format your citations and references consistent with APA guidelines
