What is a creation myth?
A creation myth is a story of how the Universe, Earth, and life came to be. It represents the religious, moral and spiritual views of a certain culture or society. Creation stories most often have plotlines with one or more divine characters. Many distinct creation myths have been thought up by cultures from around the world throughout history, and they can be categorized into different types. Creation myths, while they don't have to be literally true, are expected to convey moral or spiritual truths.

Asked in Old Testament
What are the similarities in the biblical story of creation and the Greek story of creation?
The Greek story of the actual creation resembles neither creation story in Genesis. However, Typhoeus is tricked into eating a fruit, and the Pandora myth often invites comparison with the biblical tale of Eve. Stephen P. Kershaw (A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths) says that over the centuries Eve appears to have been transformed into a Pandora figure, someone for men to be wary of, but that was not the original meaning of the biblical story.
Asked in Creation
Are creation story's the same as creation myths?
It depends how you define the word 'story'. If you use it to refer to an actual event which is being retold, then, no they are not synonymous. If you use 'story' to refer to a tale that is made-up, then, yes, it means the same as myth. For a Christian, the Creation is an actual historical event which explains the beginnings of our earth and life upon it. For sceptics, the term 'myth' is applied since they choose not to accept it as a record of an event in time.
