Enough talking about the end of the world =)

Let's share some creation stories instead. What do you believe about creation? Are there any other creation stories/ideas that you like even if you don't believe in it?

I am a Christian and believe that God created the world in 6 days, and that Adam and Eve were the first people. I also enjoy many of the Native American creation stories from a mythology stand point. They are told so beautifully.

  • I'm going to sound crazy but I just watched a few shows on the history channel about aliens putting us here! It went into how the building blocks of life can be found in space, ancient drawings and physics, it was very interesting and sounds like a good of a theory as any other.

  • I believe in evolution.  I'm watching the documentary Planet Earth, so far I've seen the episodes about volcanoes and the atmosphere.   We owe our existence to volcanoes and bacteria! 


    It's an incredible series which I highly recommend to anyone interested in evolution.

  • I believe there was a Creator that kicked everything off and evolution took over from there.

    OP ... Is that 6 of OUR days? And I have to disagree about Adam and Eve being the first. They were the first in the GARDEN but not on earth. Just the way I read it in Genesis.

  • I believe in Creation but not 6 literal days. I'm not familiar with to many other stories except evolution..at least I don't remember any...

  • SpiritedWitch- yes I believe is a literal 6 days. My own reading has not lead me to believe any differently. As for disagreeing with my beliefs, you obviously have that right. This questions wasn't really intended to be a debate on our beliefs though, just a sharing experience =)

  • I am a firm believer in evolution.. I believe the act of creation can be seen through this process through the beauty of sexual reproduction.. and that every act of love is an act of creation and a tribute to the entire process.

  • I found this website with links to many creation stories from a round the world. I can't be certain that all the stories are correct since I haven't heard them all before, but it is some interesting reading.

  • I believe in a self-existent cosmos or a self-contained universe--essentially that the universe creates itself. A Universe that has no beginning or end. It just IS. I accept science as the best method for understanding the universe. I accept the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection as the best explanations of how our world and we came to be.

    "The quantum theory of gravity has opened up a new possibility, in which there would be no boundary to space time. . . There would be no singularities at which the laws of science broke down and no edge of space-time at which one would have to appeal to God or some new law to set the boundary conditions for space-time. . . The universe would be completely self-contained and not affected by anything outside itself. It would neither be created nor destroyed. It would just BE. . . What place, then, for a creator?"

  • I accept current scientific theory as to the origins of our world and this universe.
