Fulfills upper level theology requirement.
The seminar will discuss the parallels and the differences among 6 ancient creation narratives: the Japanese, Babylonian, Greek, Norse, Mayan, and the Bible. The parallels will reveal the deepest questions and answers of the human experience. The contrasts will show the differences which characterize various cultures. These will be considered in the light of the Bible: what it shares with all humanity, and how it is unique.
