CREATION, Myths Old and New
Creativity series No.2. for Parenting and Teaching
About the Book
Sir Karl Popper, the great philosopher, said, “The real mystery in life is that the universe itself seems to be creative.”
This book is an introduction to creativity with an essay on the connection between faith and fiction.
It contains a few of the author’s favorite ancient cultural myths, some folktales of recent times, and some original stories.
These are ideal for reading to children.
This book includes stories for families from our ancestors great and unknown; some are contemporary individualistic doodles in the sands of time that readers may simply enjoy. All of us should be telling the stories of our imaginations for the sake of our children and future generations, not only for their pleasure but wherein they might find a way forward through the mysteries and changes in life.
The book has commentaries on the myths and finishes with an explanation of the purpose of myths that concludes with a challenge for modern myth making.
