In a now multi-cultural world, and one in which two thirds of the worlds human population is not Christian, why just focus on the Genesis "creation" story, and the usual dim-witted reductionist interpretations of it.

There are quite literally hundreds of "creation" stories now available to anyone with an internet connection. Stories from every known culture, and time and place. All of which are our now common inheritance.

And what if the real purpose of "creation" stories is NOT to explain how human beings, and the world altogether came to be.

But to provide a means by which we can transcend our dreadful fear saturated mortal seriousness, by providing a means to enter into an enchanted open-ended psychic relationship to everything.

Such enchantment was the nature of traditional entirely oral story-telling.
