Comments The creation of the universe is described in the oldest writings that come down to us from cultures like the Babylonian, the Egyptian, the Greek, the Chinese, and the Indian. In Indian legend the universe is a giant egg which is brought forth from the void by the creator Prajapati. In Tahitian legend Ta'aroa creates the universe out of the immensity of pure space and forms the rocky substance of the Earth. In the Norse legend there's nothing at all with frost to the north and fire to the south until the heat melts the frost, and from the liquid drops the giant Ymir grows who creates the world. These are examples of mythological cosmology, the description of the universe that ties cosmology to human cultures and to the stories that people have always told about the night sky.
