History

posted by .

I had to read a couple of creation myth stories for my history class, and now I have to write an essay on them. I understand mostly why they are important, but I'm failing to understand the role that nature plays in them.
Can someone please tell me what that role is, or give me some links that would explain it?

    Early people looked around themselves at nature and tried to figure out how the world and people were created.

    This site tells about the role of fleas, eggs, mountains, seas, etc. play in some Chinese creation myths.
