Hossain 1 Koshiq Hossain Dr. Grass Religion 101: Nature of Religion November 11, 2019 The Purpose of Creation Myths As a human being, it is in our nature to ask questions about everything. A part of this, we ask questions about the origin of our life and how the world came to be. We begin by asking how we were born, which of course, we know the answer to, but who created the generations before and who was the first person to start it all? How did the world come to be and how was life like back then when it was first created? Human beings had a long history of trying to understand the world and the purpose of life. It is in human nature to wonder how everything came to be and about the unknown and why things are the way they are. Though there are many views as to what the purpose of life is, there are also many views on how the world was created and what gave rise to it. To understand why they were created and how the universe was first brought to be, people began to create myths, more specifically, creation myths. A creation myth is a symbolic way of telling how the universe was created and how people first came to be. In almost every culture, a creation myth was made in different versions yet they all share a similar origin. The importance of creation myths is to show how they influence people in the way they think about the world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
