    DescriptionAfter discussing the nature of religion, mythic and scientific modes of thinking and the general character of creation myths, Charles Long interprets five major types of such myths: creation from nothing, emergence myths, world-parent myths, creation from Chaos and from the cosmic egg, and earth-diver myths. Original texts of creation myths from a wide range of cultures offer insights into the authentic ways of mythic thinking and expression.
