The universe begins with one shot, where it always existsWas there a supernatural being behind all this, or forces all blind?The beginning of things has forever tested the limits of curiosity, and these questions have so challenged atheists and inspired believers.Old cultures have used myth and symbolism to tell vibrant stories about the origins of mankind.Civilizations later added philosophical and scientific explanations: but these are not definitiveThe nature and meaning of existence – the “why” as much as questions of how – in the mysterious end.In this vivid and wide-ranging book, G R Evans explores stories of myriad world creation in the context of the great question is there: what are we doing here?Discuss Swahili legends that resemble Genesis, Greek stories about the Titans, Native American mythologies, Inca and Mesopotamian mythologies, and cycles of Vedic creation that begin with a cosmic egg or seeds, the author of polytheistic, monotheistic and dualist surveys about supernatural powers.Retracing the history of mankind, as it has fought for millennia to give a sense of self, the myth of creation will attract students in religion, history, philosophy and readers in general as well.
