The story of creation is one known and believed by many and though has not been proven factual is harmoniously and readily repetitive throughout various cultures While the many stories of creation do contain discrepancies they are alike in numerous ways In view of the fact that the stories cannot be confirmed as viable they are considered myths by many souls Myths are stories that are not necessarily false but rather created and possibly exaggerated in an attempt to explain natural phenomena This could be seen as the case in the story of creation in both The Walum Olum and Genesis in the bible which eerily coincide in their attempt to explain the creation of life and earth The Walum Olum and Genesis chapter one concur in many aspects of the story They begin their path of similarity in stating the fact that a supreme being or spirit is the creatior of all life known as the great Manito in the pictorial delaware story and God in the bible Both accounts set the mood of existence before creation as void and without form except for the prescence of a everpresent spirit The Walum Olum says On the earth was extended fog at first forever in space everywhere their the great Manito was Much like this the bible states in verse 2 Now the earth was formless and empty darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters In both tales the creation of the sun moon stars land man and animals are all represented in their own way He made the sun the moon the stars He gave the fish he gave the turtles he gave the beast he gave the birds so says The Walum Olum The bible is not as simplistic and consice in stating the created but still contains them God made two great lights the greater light to govern the day
