Um mito de criação é uma narrativa simbólica pertencente a uma cultura, tradição ou povo, que descreve os seus mais remotos inícios, como o mundo, tal como conhecem, se iniciou e como eles primeiro surgiram nele.[1] [2] [3] Mitos de criação foram desenvolvidos nas tradições orais,[2] e a forma mais comum de mito encontrada na cultura humana.[4] [5] Nas sociedades em que são contadas, os mitos de criação geralmente são vistos como portadores de verdades profundas, embora não necessariamente num sentido histórico ou literal.[4] Comumente, embora não sempre, são considerados mitos cosmogônicos - isto é, que descrevem a ordenação do cosmo a partir de um estado de caos ou amorfia.[6] Frequentemente são considerados relatos sagrados, e podem ser encontrados em quase todas as religiões conhecidas.[7]
