They did it the same way we do. Certain functions (creation, reward, punishment, end times) are in the domain of the gods, and a human priesthood holds power over the people with fear and superstition. The priesthood and the ruling class often work together to solidify power, and theological issues sometimes determine how power is distributed. Wars and other international conflicts can easily be seen as a clash among gods, and the success or failure of earthly campagns reflect the power and influence of the gods. Very little has changed except the cast of characters.

Has Science disproved the Creation story?

Yes. Creation is a story while evolution is science. The two can really never explain each other. You can not use science to explain any fairy tales.Creationists do think that their story does explain things.Answer:No, of course not. As the above answer states, the two cannot explain each other. Science cannot prove that God didn't create the Universe. A significant percentage of scientists believe in God as the creator and the agent of evolution, or without evolution.Answer:Just because some scientists believe in god, it doesn't mean that they believe in creation stories. The argument that because they believe in god must mean that they don't believe in evolution is illogical. And a creationist would first have to prove god exists and explain god's origins.
