How did the vikings think the world was created?
In brief, the earth, named Midgard was formed from nothing. From nothing sprang the mists of Niflheim in the North. In the south there formed a realm of fire called Muspellsheim. When these realms met, water drops from the melting frost formed the first being, or frost giant named Ymir. Other giants then formed under his left arm, a man and a woman. From the offspring of these other giants were born three gods, Odin, Vili, and Ve. These three killed the giant Ymir and from his body they made the earth, or Midgard, between Niflheim and Muspellsheim.

Muslims believe that the world was created by Allah ( the God). "He(Allah) is the Originator of the heavens and the earthâ¦"(Surat al-Anam: 101) Dr. Zakir Naik , in …one of his lectures reffered following verse in support of Big Bang theory: "Do those who are disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were sewn together and then We unstitched them and that We made from water every living thing? So will they not have faith?" (Surat al-Anbiya': 30)
Buddhism as a Philosophy does not care much for the past and that includes the question on how the world was created. Real Buddhism is only concerned on the present moment. Ha…ve you noticed that most people dwells on the past and hope for tomorrow? We are doing something at present but our mind is somewhere else. The only reality is the present moment. Answer Buddhists are not so interested in "where it all came from" as they are with "what to do about it now" The question of origins is so vast that people could spend all of eternity contemplating it and never get around to the important considerations of escaping the cycle of death and re-birth. A story likens it to a man shot with a poison arrow who must receive immediate attention. Each time the doctor goes to treat him he asks questions like "Who shot the arrow?", "Who was his teacher?", "Who manufactured the arrows and the bow?" until his time runs out and he dies. Answer I am very much in agreement with both the previous answers. Those answers are the answers to our day to day happiness. If I try to share my opinion about the creation of this world, from a Buddhism's view point First : Nothing is independent as an absolute self with a designation sufficient to find it so. For example, we say consciousness as an abstract. But scientifically it is a combination of neurons in the brain and pulses among them. But just a physical brain neurons is not sufficient to call it as consciousness. Therefore, It agrees with the physics theory that says" Particles do have wave nature and waves do have particle nature. Therefore, it is not sufficient to study the creation of the brain or the consciousness in a context of only physical or only wave respectively. Creation of this world is not just about what we see from our eyes, but also the body faculties that appreciate it as a creation. Second: A Visual is always an even of a past witnessing at the present. Every visual is conditioned and tensed. A beautiful flower is under the pull of gravity, the beautiful solar system is under the pull of Sun, My big Buddha statue on my table is under gravity bending the table and may break the table one day and so on. Now let us see the smallest called atom and its truth: 1. An atom is an atom if it has a nucleus. 2. An atom is an atom if it has a centre +ve equal to the -ve outer. 3. An atom is an atom if the +ve centre and -ve centre are separated through a distance. 4. An atom is an atom if it is stable by nature if not disturbed. i.e (+ve centre) + (-ve outer) = Zero= Empty=stable. This shows, the basic building block of this universe is zero or stable or nothing or weightless or dimensionless or colourless and so on. But even this Nothingness depends on many things to become a nothing, such is the +ve centre, -ve outer etc. Therefore, something made up of a big collection of such a nothingness cant be something. If we see something, we are seeing a collection of nothingness which are already caused and so dependent. A dependent thing can not be an absolute in itself sufficient to find it separately. Third From where that +v ( neutrons) and -ve (electron) came? Possible answers are: 1. They are existent independently and physicals having Masses. But they are waves and abstracts having amplitudes and wavelengths. A positive wave and negative wave get collapsed ( degenerative) or amplifies (generative) depending on cycle times. So, sometimes they are there and sometimes not. 2. They appear or came in to being only when something were separated bringing a potential difference for attractions between the two. But they get stabilized to zero when mixed and nothing remains. Why? because the innate nature of this event was to get stabilized from potentials, to be peaceful, calm, cool, so love, so compassion, so nothing but everything we wanted at the very root of our heart. Conclusion in this context For the basic unit of this world (Atom) for being something called ATOM, it need the following things at a time: 1. -ve and +ve potentials with nothing when mixed. 2. a mass which is also a wave without mass. 3. a wave nature which is also a mass. 4. a concept of separation, attraction and cancellation at a time. We cant delete any of these concepts anytime If we wanted to make an ATOM as understood. Therefore, an absolute self can't be so dependent like the ATOM. So this world is just an event of causes with neither the first cause nor the last ..but ofcoz non of these two. And this is the only reason that world became so.
scientist think that the BIG BANG created the universe .

THE SYMBOLISM OF THE HINDU CREATION OF THE WORLD: To clearly understand the Hindu concept of creation of the world, we must keep in mind that, 1. The world is eternal and wa…s not created at any point of time 2. 'Creation of the world' is symbolic of creation of a new life after our life is devastated completely. THE THREE HINDU CONCEPTS OF CREATION OF THE WORLD: 1. Brahman, the supreme Hindu god, directly created the world 2. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva emerged from Brahmanda (default state of Brahman) and Brahma created the world, under the observation of Vishnu and Shiva. 3. Vishnu emerged from Brahmanda and Brahma emerged from the navel of Vishnu and created the world The first concept is the original and the most efficient for creation of a new life. The third, the most accepted, is the last and the safest. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VISHNU AND BRAHMA: The sitting of Brahma on a lotus, whose stem emerges from the navel of Vishnu, may look like imagination of an artist. However, it is based on human physiology. The semi voluntary Vishnu force corresponds to our abdomen and the voluntary component of the semi voluntary force, which Brahma represents, to our navel. Brahma and creation: Of the seven forces we have, the voluntary Brahma force is the best force for creation of a new life as it is a short duration force and is directly under our control. It is thus the best force for experimenting. Thus, according to Hinduism, 1. The world is eternal 2. Symbolically, Vishnu emerges from Brahmanda and Brahma emerges from Vishnu to create the world (new life).
The ancient Greeks believed the world was created when Chaos, Gaea,and Eros mixed with each other, creating the gods. In other words,the creation of the world began with the c…reation f the gods.
Although the concept of creation in Sikhism is not of grave importance as it causes a lot of quarreling between religions, the Sikh idea of creation was as follows: Which Th…ou created on and on, Then rolled them out into space, The divisions3, the orbs4, the universes5, All they sing Thy glory and grace; (6 : 11) God created the Universe with his divine Hukam (Command), And behold! There came light. And God was in love with his creation, as his creation was in love with its divine master as well.
They think that god [Allah] created the world

The aboriginal culture based its belief on the creation of the world was because of Dreaming. There is not a god creating things, but there are Dreaming beings that control th…e natural world. The concept of an existence of something before there was matter did not exist. People are believed to have spirits which originate from Dreaming but, it is their belief that these beings originated from the land and they in turn gave birth to mankind, animal and plant life.
According to the dates provided in the Torah, this is now the year 5772 since Creation. But this refers to when Adam and Chava (Eve) received their souls, this does not refer …to the actual physical creation of the world itself. Judaism doesn't have a set date for the creation of the world itself. This is because the unspecific term of 'yom' is used in the story of creation. While the modern and most common use of the word 'yom' is a 24 hour period (1 day), this is not the only meaning of the word. The word 'yom' can also refer to a long period of time (similar to an epoch) which is the form it takes in the creation story found in the Torah.
