In the “Sun Creation” of the Brule Sioux Indians, the sun was the main “god” that did most of the work. It also pulled out its eye to create the moon, from which woman was created. However, today we know that the sun is not a being, just a great body of fire. It does not have eyes, and the only powers it has is that of heat, gravity, and radiation. In the Bible, you cannot see God, and He is everywhere all at once.
God created the heavens, earth, all living plants, animals and he made one man and one woman. The man and woman were named Adam and Eve. o Myth 2: There wasn’t any main characters in the Big Bang, it was a fire ball that exploded under extreme pressure which then created the world. • What was the motivation to create the world? o Myth 1: God created the world because there was nothing, no one and it was dark, so God created the world full of light, stars, land, animals and humans.

The previous king, Akhenaten, worshiped the Atenist religion but when Tutankhamun took the throne he returned to the old religion of Amunism. Evidence of Tutankhamun’s belief in Amunism was found through a number of scarab beetles found in the tomb and near the body.

The scarab beetle is represented because of the way it dragged it’s ball of dung out of the hot sand, reminded the Egyptians of the sun’s ‘rebirth’ period. Throughout Tutankhamun’s tomb we find many artefacts that suggest that Tutankhamun greatly believed in Osiris, the King of the Underworld.
There was a supreme god, Itzama, and the rest of gods were ranked in importance. Most gods had human characteristics and needed human sacrifices to propitiate them. It is said that rivalry among the Mayan city-states often involved bloody fights. Painting show a society bent on war and using captives as sacrifices. At the top of the society was a ruler and around the ruler were a class of aristocrats whose wealth was determined by ownership of land.

According to Rompalske (2000), the story centered on Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, and the hardships they suffered. The first conclusion is an inference that has to do with stories regarding the “curse”. At the opening of the tomb of King Tut, a clay tablet was unearthed in the antechamber, with a warning to keep out of the tomb or else experience a horrible death.
In early times Aztecs believed in the sacrificial rights. Aztecs believed that a person who was a sacrificial victim was known to be the “divine dead”. Mexicans also believed a way a person lives, that’s the way a person will die. “Tell me how you die and I will tell you who you are” (DeSpelder and Strickland, 2005). Mexicans decorate graves and death is apart of everyday life in the Mexican culture.
In religion Native Americans and Europeans had the belief of a powerful being or beings were a mayor difference found. For Europeans, Christianity was their mayor religion which they were entitle to spread to the New World. For the Natives seeing a new god was nothing new. They saw this new God as just another God with different powers; Native were entitle to multiple Gods with different abilities or powers ranging from healing powers to the God of the sun or the rain.
