Provencal HUM/105 World Mythology Wednesday, June 6, 2012 Cherie Ann Turpin The study of mythology is used to describe stories from various cultures to describe/explains certain actions that might have occurred that are considered mysterious or unexplainable. In moving forward, creation myths is defined as telling a special kind of story known as “cosmogony”, a word deriving from Greek that means, literally, “the birth of order.” (Leonard, S., & McClure, M. 2004) In performing some research and reading more into “cosmogony”, cosmogony is also defined as a mythological explanation for the creation and evolution of the universe.

But Homer said in the Iliad that it had the front of a lion, the tail of a snake and a middle like a goat, the description that most other authors have followed.
