We have always wonder about what we don't know, like the why and how we are in this planet, why we are alive, and more. And well, every culture try to explain this in their own words through some creation myths.
Some of these myths start with a birth, which represents life, also this relates to the idea of a figure either maternal or paternal, and we all can relate to this right?.
In every story there is a Supreme Being (usually a God), and its the one that starts the engines you might say for the creation of the universe. But not every myth share this, some others believe that life came from either above or below of we are standing, others that the Earth was covered in water and the land was raised up.
Another interesting point I found, its that in some cases, humans and animals used to live in harmony one with the other, but this was no more due to the sins that humans did against their creators, or the animals were lied and used by one being and was punished for that.
As time goes by, we are still trying to come up with ideas or theories in how everything was created. Even in this time, are still new myths about our own creation, and even tho using scientific evidence, the old tales are still surviving though songs and tales.
