Ok its old, but ive been thinking about it for a while. Heres the quotes from Jon Stewart
Why are we here? And how did we get here? Not here necessarily, but HERE! For most of human history the answer took the form of what were called creation myths — traditional stories explaining our origins. They tended to follow a basic template. Typically a deity, either animalistic, anthropomorphic, or bearded, engages in some mystical, wonderous process, that eventually produces the misshapen progenitors of the human race — an thus becomes man. These myths comforted man, by allowing him to laugh at other cultures creation myths. For instance, the Aztecs say we were dug out of the earth by a giant pig. Everyone knows we sprouted from the heavenly ear of corn.
But the rise of Christianity brought a new Creation story to the forum. In six days, man was formed from a lump of clay. And woman sprung from man’s rib. It just made sense.
