Myths that include gods becoming part of the land include Greek and Chinese creation myths.

(Murtagh, cs.williams.edu) The Chinese creation myth says that in the very beginning, there was only a large egg that contained a god named P’an Ku. However, P’an Ku eventually grew too big for the egg and burst it.

In the Pima tribe’s eyes “The Doctor of the Earth” created everything from bushes, ants, and mountains to even people. Pima’s believe that “The Doctor of the Earth” created people to assist him in producing offspring, and other natural objects such as trees. Calvin on Predestination, on the other hand, believed that a selected few were chosen by God to be saved by his grace while the rest of the people were sentenced to eternal death. Calvin’s view on Predestination states that a person’s destiny is already decided by God; whereas, the Pima creation story does not specify the destiny of a person, only his purpose. The Europeans and the Native Americans believed very different creation stories, causing the mentality of both the Europeans and
In Popol Vuh the gods try many times to create the perfect human. When they used mud, their creations dissolved into the water. When they used wood, their creations could speak, “But there was nothing in their hearts and nothing in their minds, no memory of their mason and builder”(Popol Vuh 81). The gods were angry about this because if the wood people could not remember their creators, the gods would not be worshipped. They destroyed these creations in very gruesome ways, one of the methods of destroying them being a flood.
The Iceman connects us to some of our earliest ancestors and tells us a lot about early humans. One of the most exciting things you will get to see is the Iceman himself. Right before his death, the Iceman was shot in the back with an arrow which caused his slender body to fall face first onto a rock.

The Sky Spirit, Shawnee Tribe, and Kiwaan 's legacy Long ago lived a great Sky Spirit, a Giant Snake named Scavenger, and a mischievous Coyote by the name of Kahali. The Sky Spirit and Scavenger lived together up in the sky above a world of nothingness where Kahali lived all alone. All around them was nothing but clouds as the eye can see.

This is contrary to the more popular myth of Nü Wa. Walls and Walls (1984) relate that there were no men when the sky and the earth were separated. It was Nü Wa (Emperor Yandi's youngest daughter) who made men by molding yellow clay because she was lonely.
