Christian And Navajo Creation Distributed: 23rd March, 2015 Last Edited: fourth May, 20vChristian And Navajo Creation Published: 23rd March, 2015 Last Edited: 4th May, 2017 Disclaimer: This essay has been submitted by a student.

Any opinions, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of UK Essays. All places, people, cultures and religions have a beginning; something or someone had to create the land, sea, animals and people. The story of creation varies from culture to culture but in some instances you can find similarities between two cultures that were divided by an ocean and thousands of miles. The two creation myths are those of the Christians and the Navajo peoples. These myths have been passed down from generation to generation and never forgotten. The creation myths for these two cultures are the building blocks for their futures. These two cultures weren't only divided by an ocean and thousands of miles but by different languages and the time period in which each creation takes place. Despite the difference between these two myths, the similarities that are found are quite remarkable. The creation myths of the Navajo and Christian people contain specific symbolisms that make each unique, from the different characters, to the presence and development of evil and the floods that wiped out life or moved life forward, these show that no matter how great the distance there can be similarities and not just differences. Each creation myth will be assessed individually because it is easier to fully understand the relation between the two myths. The Christian creation myth will be addressed first because it is the most well known of the two. In the Christian creation myth there was one God, The Triune God that consists of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. He was the divine creator in the Christian creation myth that is told in The Book of Genesis. The Lord God of the Christian creation myth has the ability to create anything from nothing. He takes an earth that does not yet have form to it and creates the heavens, the land and all living creatures on it, including man. When God creates the earth it takes him six days to create the world and he rests on the seventh day. He didn't create the earth all at once, he did it in steps. First he created light, then the heavens, then the land and plants, next the sun and moon, then the fish and birds and on the final day he created the animals and man. The Lord God, The Divine Creator, is a figure of great power and wisdom that is not always believed to be true later in the bible. If you look past the initial creation of the earth and focus on the sixth day when man was created you will find two characters that started human life on earth. Adam was the first male to be created. He was created from dust and the breathe of god that gave him life and breathe of his own. God created Adam to rule over all the animals and to tend to the Garden of Eden. Adam was also tasked with the job of naming all the birds and animals. God tried to find a helper for Adam so that he didn't have to care for Eden alone, but none of the animals god created was capable of helping Adam. Since God could not find a suitable helper for Adam he put him into a deep sleep and removed one of Adams ribs and used it to create the first woman, Eve. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve could eat whatever plants and fruits they wanted, except the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Eating the fruit was forbidden and they both were told that if they ate it, they would die. This is the part of the story where the first instance of evil is introduced. One day when Eve was working in the garden she was approached by a serpent. This serpent was no normal serpent, it was Satan disguised as one of God's creatures. As the serpent, Satan tricked Eve into eating and sharing with Adam a fruit from the forbidden tree. When Satan is disguised as the snake, he is seen as a trickster who gets his way through tricking and manipulating the helpless. When God found out what Adam and Eve had done he cursed them, as well as the serpent. The serpent was cursed to forever crawl on his belly and eat dust for the rest of his life. Eve was cursed with severe pains when birthing children and that her husband will always rule over her. When God got to Adam he cursed the ground that he will plant his crops and it will produce inedible foods. All of this pain and suffering was all because of a trickster. After Adam and Eve were banished from Eden for eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they made love and Eve got pregnant. The lord had blessed them with their first son and they named him Cain. Eve looks as her son as a blessing and realizes that the lord had given her Cain and also realized that he is the ultimate source of life. Eve also had another son that was named Abel. Cain worked the land and soil and Abel watched and worked the flocks of sheep or other various animals. When these two men went to bring gifts to God, Cain brought gifts of fruit from the soil and Abel brought gifts of fat portions from the younger part of the flock. The lord favored Abel's gift over Cain's and this made him angry. The Lord God asked Cain why he was so angry and explained to him that if you allow sin to get a grasp on you it will eventually lead to something terrible. After this talk with God, Cain went to find Abel and asked him to go to the field with him. Once there Cain attacked and killed Abel because he was jealous of how God favored Abel's offering over his. When he returned from the field God asked Cain where his brother is and he told him that he didn't know where he was. God knew what had happened to Abel and cursed Cain and told him that the ground will never yield crops to him again. Cain left his home and became a wanderer and said that whoever finds him will kill him. God said that that is not so for whom ever kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over. This is because he wants Cain to live as long as he can so that he will always have the burden of knowing that he killed his brother. Cain and his wife lived in the land of Nod which was east of Eden. Cain eventually married and his wife had a child named Enoch. Cain built a city here and named it after his son. Enoch eventually has sons who had sons that. Down the lineage one of the family members of Cain had murdered a young man and he was also cursed like Cain. Adam and Eve were blessed again with another child in place of the slain Abel, his name was Seth. Seth also had a son, he called him Enosh. After Enosh was born the people of the land started to call to the lord and pray to him. The conclusive symbolic event that happens in the Christian creation myth is the flood that destroys all living creatures below the heavens. The flood is brought on by God because he was disgusted by how corrupt and violent life on earth had become. God spoke to a man that he felt would bring balance back to earth after the flood; this man's name was Noah. God instructed Noah to build an Ark made from cypress wood to his exact dimensions. After the Ark was built Noah was told to gather two animals of every kind, one male and one female and put them on the ark to save them from the flood. He was also told to bring seven pair of the "clean" animals onto the ark. The "clean" animals were to be used for sacrifice once the flood waters had receded. God also instructed him to bring his wife, all three of his sons and his sons wives onto the ark as well. Noah was given seven days to complete all this before the rain started. Once the rain started it would not stop for 40 days and 40 nights. The water from the rain rose so high that they covered the highest mountains on earth. Eventually the rain stopped, but the water did not recede for one hundred and fifty days, the God sent a wind that started lowering the flood waters. As the flood waters receded the ark found a resting place on the Mountains of Ararat. Noah sent a raven to see if it could find dry land and it returned with nothing. Later he sent a dove out to do the same thing and it too returned with nothing. Seven days after the first dove returned, Noah sent out the dove again and this time it returned with an olive branch. In another seven days he would send the dove out again and this time it would not return. This told Noah that the flood waters receded and it was now safe to leave the ark. After Noah, his family and all the living creatures left the ark; God came to Noah and told him and his family to repopulate the earth. After the flood God vowed never to curse the ground again because of humans, he originally cursed the ground because of Adam and Eve's betrayal and it led to the death and destruction of all life on earth. From these symbols, it's easy to see how they all, in their own way, affected the creation of earth. Of the different themes in this creation myth the one that defines God as the Divine Creator is the most extensive one because he has the ability to create anything from nothing. At the beginning of the creation myth there is only one being, the divine creator, God. His power of creation is never rivaled during the telling of the Christian creation myth. As he creates the earth and all the creatures, man is created in his likeness. When Adam is living in Eden with Eve another meme is introduced; the division of good by evil. This takes place when Eve is tempted by Satan, as the form of a serpent, to eat an apple from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. She does so and also shares some of it with Adam. When this happens, it divides Adam and Eve from God and he curses them and the serpent. Satan, as the serpent, is pleased because he successfully divided God from man. Eating that apple leads to corruption and violence on Earth. This is when God purges the earth with the flood. It seems that, with the creation of land, water, creatures, or man, evil will be present in some form. You have read about different symbols and themes in the Christian creation myth but the form in which it was originally to be important as well. The story was passed down from person to person through speech. It was an oral tradition for quite a while. It was not recorded in written form until God gave it to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The source of the story is in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible in the Book of Genesis. The book of Genesis is one of five books that comprise the bible. It is felt by many scholars that the language in the Christian creation myth was formally recorded. The bible as it is known today in the United States is a translation of the original bible that was recorded thousands of years ago. When the bible was originally translated from Hebrew to English, it is said that they translated it word for word instead of translated phrases or whole sentences or thought for thought. The story that is heard today is the translation of Hebrew text that was passed down from God. The Christians believed this story of creation when it was first written and they still believe in it and all its characters today. The people to which the Christian creation myth came to was the Hebrew people. The role of women in their culture can be seen as being below man all through the bible. Its starts pretty early when God is cursing Eve for eating the apple and he tells her that she will forever be ruled over by man. This lack of respect for women is found in almost every book of the bible in various ways. Women are treated like lesser beings. This is even true in the Christian religion today. Men are considered the ruler of the house and of the church. In the modern church women don't play any major roles. Women cannot be priests, bishops, cardinals or even the pope. I don't think that will ever change due to the strict beliefs and history towards women in the Christian church. The Navajo creation myth compared to the Christian creation myth is a bit more complicated. The story of the Navajo creation begins in a dark world, on a piece of land that is surrounded on four sides by water. Each side represented a direction and color; white for the East, blue for the South, yellow for the West, and black for the North. On this piece of land were the insect people. No actual "god" is present at this point but someone or something has to be with the insect people because they are expelled from the first world for arguing too much. Unlike the Christian creation myth, no god or creator is visible at the beginning of the Navajo creation myth. After the insect people leave the first world, they go to the second world where they meet the bird people and not long after are asked to leave because they continued to argue. When they emerged into the third world, they meet the grasshopper people and got along with them for awhile. Eventually, however, they were asked to leave this world, too. They left this world and emerged with four grasshopper people; each colored the same color as one of the directions. In this world there were for mountains, each facing a specific direction. The insect people searched for people to the south, east, and west, and they found nothing. Then they traveled north and came across farming community. It's people, the Pueblo's, taught the insect people to farm, along with other necessary skills for survival. At this point in the creation story, the first god appears to the insect people, sometime during the first autumn. The god's name was "talking god" and with him appeared four other gods called: White Body, Blue Body, Yellow Body, and Black body. The Black Body God spoke and told the insect people to be more god-like or human and less like insects. They were also told to do a thorough self-cleanse and the Gods would return in twelve days. The Gods returned in twelve days with the Blue Body and the Black Body gods each carrying holy buckskins and the White Body and Yellow Body gods each carrying an ear of similarly colored corn. One buckskin was laid down facing east and the ears of corn were placed with eagle feathers on the buckskins and then covered with the other buckskin. By the request of the gods, wind blew between the buckskins, one from the east and one from the west. While the winds were blowing, eight mirage people encircled the mirage four times. When the top skin was removed, a man was where the white corn had been placed and a woman was where the yellow corn had been placed. They were known as the first man and first woman, or the holy people. The men and women did not always get along. Much like in the Christian creation myth there seemed to be a divide between the men and the women. The Navajo people had an argument about the true reason that men hunt. This reason is that the sexual power of the women makes them hunt. The men became angry at this notion. The women felt that men and their abilities were not needed and they left the men. They traveled to the other side of the river where they lived for four years. During this time each side had performed "unclean" sexual acts. The women masturbated and the men would have sex with dead animal parts such as the liver of a slain deer. These unclean acts lead to the creation of monsters that will later devour and plague the people for some time. Once instance where this happened was during a river crossing with a man, woman and their two young daughters. The man and woman got across but realized their daughters did not. This is when the two people and coyote went in to the river to find the girls and they eventually did in the lair of the water monster. The water monster did not resist when the parents came to take their children back. During this time when everyone was distracted, Coyote stole the water monsters two babies and hid them under his robe. One of the symbols that keep repeating throughout the Navajo creation story is the number four, along with multiples of four. This may be because there are four main directions in the world. However, this is not made clear. Eight years after man was created a archetypal trickster appears in the creation myth. The trickster is a coyote, much like the serpent in the Christian myth. The coyote is a trouble maker and, although he is mischievous, he is not an evil being like the serpent was in the Christian myth. Coyote secretly stole the children of the water monster. This act of thievery is actually helpful in the long run. More than anything, he seemed to make bad situations worse and never seemed to be helpful. In the Navajo creation myth, there is a flood as well. However, it differs from the Christian myth because the Navajo gods did not cause the flood in order to destroy all life on earth. The people were noticing that animals were starting to leave and realized the flood was approaching. They carried with them soil from the sacred mountains and, in that soil; they planted four reeds that combined into one with a hole in the east side. All the people climbed the reed as the flood waters came. The climbed up the reed and emerged into the fifth and final world. They soon realized, however, that water was following them through the hole and they used the stolen water monster children to plug the whole. When everyone emerged into the fifth world, an argument broke out between the Navajo people and the Pueblo people. This causes the Navajo and the Pueblo people to move apart from each other at this time. Later in history, they would meet again and teach each other different skills. After this split between Pueblo and Navajo, the first man and the first woman remade the four mountains with help from the gods; using the soil from the mountains in the fourth world. All the symbols found in the Navajo creation story have a specific role or purpose. The theme of the Navajo creation myth is not a story of a divine creator, such as in the Christian myth, but it is a story of emergence through four worlds that each has their own difficulties. The Navajo emergence story is called the "Dine Bahane" and is one of the most complex stories to be originally presented orally. It is eventually written down, but for many years it was simply passed on from person to person verbally. It was not until much later that the oral rendition was translated and taken to written form. It is said that when Navajo people want to feel reborn or renewed as a culture, they perform a special ceremony. During this ceremony, they reenact the emergence creation myth. This story is just one of many ways that the creation myth is still remembered today. In conclusion, when comparing the Navajo and Christian creation myths, the symbolism that arise between the two is quite similar considering the distance between these two cultures. The research shows similar archetypes, symbols, and how the myth was first presented and passed down to its audience. The two cultures represented within these distinct creation myths lived thousands of miles apart, and yet still had a few striking similarities within their myths. However, although they had their striking similarities, they also had many dramatic differences between the two that clearly distinguishes one creation story from the other. No matter what creation myth you believe to be true, no one knows for certain how humans came to inhabit the earth.17 Disclaimer: This paper has been put together by an understudy.

Any assessments, discoveries, conclusions or proposals communicated in this material are those of the writers and don't really mirror the perspectives of UK Essays. All spots, individuals, societies and religions have a starting; something or somebody needed to make the land, ocean, creatures and individuals. The narrative of creation shifts from culture to culture yet in a few cases you can discover similitudes between two societies that were separated by a sea and a huge number of miles. The two creation legends are those of the Christians and the Navajo people groups. These fantasies have been passed down from age to age and always remembered. The creation legends for these two societies are the building hinders for their fates. These two societies weren't just separated by a sea and a large number of miles however by various dialects and the day and age in which every creation happens. Notwithstanding the contrast between these two legends, the similitudes that are found are very momentous. The creation legends of the Navajo and Christian individuals contain particular imageries that make every one of a kind, from the distinctive characters, to the nearness and improvement of underhandedness and the surges that wiped out life or propelled life, these demonstrate that regardless of how incredible the separation there can be similitudes and not simply contrasts. Every creation legend will be evaluated exclusively in light of the fact that it is less demanding to completely comprehend the connection between the two fantasies. The Christian creation fantasy will be tended to first since it is the most surely understood of the two. In the Christian creation fantasy there was one God, The Triune God that comprises of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. He was the perfect maker in the Christian creation fantasy that is told in The Book of Genesis. The Lord God of the Christian creation legend can make anything from nothing. He takes an earth that does not yet have shape to it and makes the sky, the land and every living animal on it, including man. At the point when God makes the earth it takes him six days to make the world and he lays on the seventh day. He didn't make the earth at the same time, he did it in steps. To begin with he made light, at that point the sky, at that point the land and plants, next the sun and moon, at that point the fish and feathered creatures and on the last day he made the creatures and man. The Lord God, The Divine Creator, is a figure of incredible power and shrewdness that isn't generally accepted to be genuine later in the book of scriptures. On the off chance that you look past the underlying formation of the earth and spotlight on the 6th day when man was made you will discover two characters that began human life on earth. Adam was the primary male to be made. He was made from tidy and the inhale of god that gave him life and inhale of his own. God made Adam to administer over every one of the creatures and to watch out for the Garden of Eden. Adam was additionally entrusted with the activity of naming every one of the flying creatures and creatures. God attempted to discover an aide for Adam with the goal that he didn't need to tend to Eden alone, yet none of the creatures god made was fit for helping Adam. Since God couldn't locate an appropriate assistant for Adam he place him into a profound rest and expelled one of Adams ribs and utilized it to make the main lady, Eve. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve could eat whatever plants and organic products they needed, aside from the natural product from the tree of the learning of good and wickedness. Eating the organic product was illegal and they both were informed that on the off chance that they ate it, they would bite the dust. This is the piece of the story where the primary occurrence of underhandedness is presented. One day when Eve was working in the garden she was drawn closer by a serpent. This serpent was no ordinary serpent, it was Satan camouflaged as one of God's animals. As the serpent, Satan deceived Eve into eating and offering to Adam an organic product from the taboo tree. At the point when Satan is veiled as the snake, he is viewed as a cheat who gets his way through deceiving and controlling the vulnerable. At the point when God discovered what Adam and Eve had done he reviled them, and also the serpent. The serpent was reviled to perpetually creep on his gut and eat clean for whatever remains of his life. Eve was reviled with serious agonies when birthing youngsters and that her better half will dependably administer over her. At the point when God got to Adam he reviled the ground that he will plant his yields and it will deliver unappetizing sustenances. The greater part of this torment and enduring was all a result of a swindler. After Adam and Eve were exiled from Eden for eating the product of the tree of the learning of good and fiendishness, they had intercourse and Eve got pregnant. The ruler had favored them with their first child and they named him Cain. Eve looks as her child as a gift and understands that the master had given her Cain and furthermore understood that he is a definitive wellspring of life. Eve additionally had another child that was named Abel. Cain worked the land and soil and Abel watched and worked the groups of sheep or different creatures. At the point when these two men went to convey endowments to God, Cain brought blessings of organic product from the dirt and Abel brought endowments of fat segments from the more youthful piece of the rush. The ruler supported Abel's blessing over Cain's and this made him furious. The Lord God asked Cain for what reason he was so furious and disclosed to him that on the off chance that you enable sin to get a grip on you it will in the long run prompt something horrendous. After this discussion with God, Cain went to discover Abel and requesting that he go to the field with him. Once there Cain assaulted and murdered Abel since he was envious of how God supported Abel's putting forth finished his. When he came back from the field God asked Cain where his sibling is and he disclosed to him that he didn't know where he was. God recognized what had happened to Abel and reviled Cain and disclosed to him that the ground will never yield harvests to him again. Cain left his home and turned into a drifter and said that whoever discovers him will slaughter him. God said that that isn't so for whom ever kills Cain will endure retribution seven times over. This is on the grounds that he needs Cain to live as long as he would so be able to that he will dependably have the weight of realizing that he executed his sibling. Cain and his significant other lived in the place that is known for Nod which was east of Eden. Cain in the end wedded and his significant other had a tyke named Enoch. Cain assembled a city here and named it after his child. Enoch in the long run has children who had children that. Down the genealogy one of the relatives of Cain had killed a young fellow and he was additionally reviled like Cain. Adam and Eve were honored again with another kid instead of the killed Abel, his name was Seth. Seth likewise had a child, he called him Enosh. After Enosh was conceived the general population of the land began to call to the ruler and go to him. The definitive representative occasion that occurs in the Christian creation legend is the surge that devastates every living animal underneath the sky. The surge is expedited by God since he was appalled by how degenerate and savage life on earth had progressed toward becoming. God addressed a man that he felt would take adjust back to earth after the surge; this present man's name was Noah. God educated Noah to assemble an Ark produced using cypress wood to his correct measurements. After the Ark was assembled Noah was advised to accumulate two creatures of each kind, one male and one female and put them on the ark to spare them from the surge. He was additionally advised to bring seven sets of the "perfect" creatures onto the ark. The "perfect" creatures were to be utilized for forfeit once the surge waters had subsided. God likewise trained him to bring his better half, each of the three of his children and his children spouses onto the ark too. Noah was given seven days to finish this before the rain began. Once the rain began it would not stop for 40 days and 40 evenings. The water from the rain ascended so high that they secured the most astounding mountains on earth. In the long run the rain halted, yet the water did not subside for one hundred and fifty days, the God sent a breeze that began bringing down the surge waters. As the surge waters subsided the ark found a laying place on the Mountains of Ararat. Noah sent a raven to check whether it could discover dry land and it came back with nothing. Later he sent a bird out to do a similar thing and it too came back with nothing. Seven days after the primary bird returned, Noah conveyed the pigeon again and this time it came back with an olive branch. In an additional seven days he would send the bird out again and this time it would not return. This revealed to Noah that the surge waters retreated and it was presently sheltered to leave the ark. After Noah, his family and all the living animals left the ark; God came to Noah and let him know and his family to repopulate the earth. After the surge God pledged never to revile the ground again as a result of people, he initially reviled the ground due to Adam and Eve's double-crossing and it prompted the passing and pulverization of all life on earth. From these images, it's anything but difficult to perceive how they all, in their own specific manner, influenced the making of earth. Of the distinctive subjects in this creation fantasy the one that characterizes God as the Divine Creator is the most broad one since he can make anything from nothing. Toward the start of the creation fantasy there is just a single being, the perfect maker, God. His energy of creation is never matched amid the recounting the Christian creation fantasy. As he makes the earth and every one of the animals, man is made in his similarity. At the point when Adam is living in Eden with Eve another image is presented; the division of good by underhanded. This happens when Eve is enticed by Satan, as the type of a serpent, to eat an apple from the tree of the learning of good and malevolence. She does as such and furthermore imparts some of it to Adam. At the point when this happens, it separates Adam and Eve from God and he reviles them and the serpent. Satan, as the serpent, is satisfied in light of the fact that he effectively partitioned God from man. Eating that apple leads>GET ANSWER
