We get creation stories from all over: China, The Bible, North America, Norse, Greek Mythology, Norway and many others. My favorite unknown story was an Austrailian Aboriginal Story called 'Why There Are Butterflies.' The animals of this world did not understand death and when it happened they were sad and did not understand so they asked for help. The crow said that death was a cycle, that in death we go to another existence and then come back. All the animals tried to be something else, the only ones that succeded were the bugs. All the animals were happy because they knew death was no longer scary.
