Are the creators male or female, and of what significance is gender? Describe what they created, including the steps or cycles of creation. Also, include descriptions of any destroyers or destruction if applicable.
Include the role of cosmic occurrences or natural phenomena, such as celestial bodies, floods, rain, wind, and fire.
Compare the creators, creations, the steps or cycle of creation, and the cosmic elements of the two myths. What are the similarities and differences? Format your citations and references consistent with APA guidelines.
