I think it’s worth considering creation myths side by side because they all sound about equally improbable to me. Which of these is correct? None of them, of course; none explain readily-confirmable scientific phenomena like the age of the universe or the past existence of the now-extinct dinosaurs. They are myths, attempts to explain things to the listener’s emotional but not intellectual satisfaction. The emotional resonance of a particular myth has a lot more to do with your own cultural background than it does to objective reality.
