Both Christianity and Islam take their creation stories from the Hebrew Bible. Therefore, they are very similar. However, whereas Christianity has simply adopted the Jewish creation account, the Quran, as dictated to Muhammed, made some changes. Both accounts say that God or Allah created the earth in six days, but whereas the Christian account says that on the seventh day God rested, the Quran states:
We created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.
The Quran also says that Allah created all living creatures except humans from water, which is not true to the Christian account. However, both stories tell of the creation of Adam and Eve: the Quran is more vague about how Eve was created. Adam in the Quran is created from mud, as he is in the Christian account.
Hindu creation accounts differ, but a major one says that Brahma, the creator god, created the world. Brahma also created a woman, named Shatarupa. She was so beautiful that Brahma sprouted four heads so that he could always watch her. In this story, she changes herself into every creature on earth to evade him. However, he too turns into every creature on earth: only a male version, thus creating the two sexes and the possibility for all life to reproduce.
