here they are
Think about themes and motifs you are studying in the stories assigned this week. Why do you think so many cultures have similar natural and supernatural occurrences in their creation stories (like floods, dramatic upheavals, and battles between gods or other divinities)? Beyond the possibility that it really occurred, can you think of reasons it would be important to civilizations or cultures to have these occurrences in their myths? Use specific examples from at least two stories to support your position.
Select two creation myths from this week’s readings. What truths does the myth indicate that tell you about the culture that created it?
