Like snowflakes, no two creation myths are identical, “The Story of the Creation”, which highlights on the creation of the Akimel O’odham, more commonly known as the Pima, and Megan Wren’s “Mayan Creation Myth” are no exception; however, there are many similarities. The “Mayan Creation Myth” and “The Story of Creation” both follow the basic path that most creation myths do starting with the emptiness in the beginning, a void to be filled by a God-like figure, who would soon create vegetation, animals, and humans who he would then destroy and start anew. With every creation myth, there is a void, or an emptiness before a greater power takes it into his hands to change that, and this is true for both the Mayan, and the Pima creation myth.
On top of this mountain the Greek gods were supposed to live. The Greeks imagined that they were the descendants and favourites of the gods, and that the “Barbarians” were mere nobodies. The ancient Romans also considered all non-Romans, including the Greeks as “Barbarians”.
Genesis 1 contradicts all of evolution as a theory, stating that an Intelligent Creator (God) created all of the earth along with all of the organisms, animals, and human beings (us). Genesis 2 and 3 state that the Fall of Man brought forth disease and death to the earth, while evolution, on the contrary, states that death and disease were existent even before the evolution of mankind. Finally, Genesis 6-7 gives clear evidence that due to the Flood, many rock layers were formed, contradicting the theories of old earth based off of evolution. As clearly seen above, Genesis (and even the Bible in its entirety) resists any attempt to correlate with evolution and the evolutionary

God created the earth by his image. They both were empty darkness in the beginning of the story. The Genesis story says that “the earth was formless and empty, darkness in the deep surfaces.” In the Greek story had empty darkness too then there was a void.
"None," is the answer. Meteors don't hit the Earth by definition, the astronomer explains. But meteorites are a different question altogether. This game of semantics underscores the fact that both of these made-for-the-living-room movies are named after the celestial rocks themselves, whereas their cinematic inspirations take the central event-the rock's ultimately-averted act of hitting the Earth-as namesakes. This semantic game also covers up the fact that names don't matter.
Death in this movement is considered only but an illusion and that life would continue on other planets. The Masters held all power and whatever they said is what must be (The Solar Temple 2004). A main practice that was performed was called cosmic coupling (Lewis 2005). Cosmic coupling is when the Master’s decided who should be with whom. Many married couples would split to be with placed with someone else.
They also believed that Atum formed the first mound of land and another god and goddess, Shu and Tefnut. Shu and Tefnut had two children named Geb and Nut.

Theseus is a demigod who was known for his strategy. He lived with his mother in a hut in a place named Troezen. One day his life changed when he was beaten in a fight with a larger boy and went to the beach to have a wave cover him, but instead the sounds of the waves put him to sleep. He then woke up and saw he had been visited by a bird who told him, “do not fear your enemy’s size, but use it against him.” With the knowledge that the bird bestowed upon him he gained the heroic qualities of strategy and bravery.
Mythologies, although depicted in different ways, are a part of every culture. Every mythology has stories of their heroes and how they came to be. Usually heroes come into this world unnaturally and strangely. Heroes have their tales of incredible quests they are sent on, like fighting horrific monsters and solving complex puzzles. Eventually heroes die, whether out of heroism or stupidity.
The Greek gods and goddesses were the basis for the Greek religion that was polytheistic. They were used to explain natural phenomenon, human qualities, and life events. The Greeks had 13 main gods and goddesses for the basis. Those Greek gods and goddesses were Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter, Aphrodite, Artemis, Apollo, Ares, Athena, Hephaestus, Hermes, and Dionysus. These figures lived on a mountain in a big utopian society with anything they wanted, this mountain was Mount Olympus.
GREEK GODS The Greek mythology is said to have emerged from Homer’s famous works, such as “Odyssey” and “Iliad”. He has set high standards for epic conventions which has influenced many Greek writers, for instance Virgil. One of the most important components in traditional epic conventions is ‘intervention of Gods’. The term “deus ex machine” means an unexpected intervention by a character or object, which helps in resolving a problem which throughout the text seems unsolvable.
