In “The World on the Turtles Back” the woman is seen as a pain to man while she was pregnant and so she was pushed by him from a hole in the Sky-World and would have drowned in the water, but was saved by animals. In “Genesis” the whole world is flooded, but Noah and his family are saved when God tells them to build an arc before he started the flood. “The Metamorphoses” portrays this when Jove decides that he needs to punish man for being evil. Jove also decides to use water as a punishment in the form of a flood. Through this two people who were the best of the humans
The Aztec and Mayan Civilizations in the Americas Ashley M. Carpenter Western Civilization II National University June 2, 2012 Abstract From 250 A.D. to the late 1500’s A.D. the Mayans and the Aztecs controlled Central and South America. Each was unique, but still shared a few of the same traits. Both had their own calendar system, counting system, and Polytheistic religious beliefs along with similar temples built to worship their deities. While the Aztecs were the most prominent users of human sacrifice, the Mayans also participated in such rituals. A few differences between these civilizations were the social structure, natural resources, and differing cultural strengths.

“Popol Vuh” and “Genesis” were very similar in many ways, but the main one I thought was how they killed people. “For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.”(70). This quote was from Genesis’s Noah and the Flood, and it showed how angry God was at the people. He killed everybody on the Earth except for Noah with this deadly flood. “The earth was blackened because of this; the black rainstorm began, rain all day and rain all night.
As the gods assembled for the race, Set cut the top off of a mountain to serve as his boat and set it in the water. His boat sank right away, and all the other gods laughed at him. Angry, Set transformed himself into a hippopotamus and attacked Horus’ boat. Horus fought off Set, but the other gods stopped him before he could kill Set. The other gods decided that the match was a tie.
This shows that when a once huge symbolism of power loses its significance, mayhem takes place. Ralph, Piggy, and Samneric march over to Castle Rock with the conch to try and get Piggy’s glasses back, and maybe restore some peace. Ralph calls an assembly with the conch and no one listens to him. Ralph and Jack get into a brawl and Jack nearly stabs Ralph with a spear. Jack orders his tribe to grab Samneric and tie them up.

Drowning the Roman soldiers leaving there chariots and armory at the bottom of the sea. The last biblical evidence is the findings of Noah's ark. Shown in the Bible of a story, this man name Noah was to build an ark for every two of the same species of animals to go on the ark because God saw going to flood the earth because of the flood in the
The first one is why the flood happened; in story three the flood happened because too many people were rejecting the Gods. This made them angry and so the God Ea warned a man of Shuruppak, that a flood was coming and he should tear down his house and build an ark. But in story four, the lord commands Noah to build an arc, and to get two of every species and bring them on his ark. Another significant difference was how much time they spent on the ark. In all of the articles the time varied, in story three they were on the boat for seven days, but in story four Noah was on his ark for forty days and nights.
