How Existence Was Created Incan creation is known based on what was written by priests, from Incan pottery and architecture, and the myths and legends that were passed down amongst the native peoples. According to them the earth was covered by darkness in the most ancient of times. A god emerged from lake Collasuyu and brought humans with him. From there he created the sun, moon, and stars. The God, Con Tiqui, created more humans out of great rocks. Once created, he sent them out into different parts of the world.
How People Were Created When Con Tiqui Viracocha emerged from the lake, he brought human beings with him. Once on land he created more humans out of rocks. The female humans he created from the rocks were already pregnant when created.
Gods Con Tiqui Viracocha : Con was considered the creator of life. He was in the form of a man, but he had no bones. He gave the first humans everything they needed to survive. Pachacamac: Pachacamac was a new god that came after Con Tiqui. He arrived to drive out Con Tiqui and his people because Con was punishing his people. Pachacamac then took the earth and made ancestors to human beings.
Good vs. Evil The people created by Con Tiqui rebelled against him and forgot all of the good things that he had done for them. Con Tiqui punished them by stopping rainfall causing them to work hard and find water in the drying riverbeds. Pachacamac came in and drove Con Tiqui out turning his people into monkeys. He then created more humans.
Inca vs. Biblical/Greek and Roman Stories In all three versions of creation, they begin with one or more gods separating the elements and creating light. The Greek/Roman stories and the Inca story both have more than one god while the bible just has one god. In the Greek/Roman stories humans were created from nature and the things of earth while in the other two versions humans were created in the God’s image. In the Inca creation myth water is taken away while in the other two versions there are floods.
