... 18 That is based directly on the sediment thickness measured at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, eleven centimeters fell per 1,000 years while at the same time away from the ridge only four centimeters would fall.

... the Bundahish (vii. 5 and II) tells of prodigious rain, in drops like bulls' heads, and men's heads rain as big as a bowl.

... Num, the demiurge, and Nga, his alter-ego. "Since you claim you are stronger than I am," Num said to Nga, "organize the earth." The sky, however, was already in existence and, as elsewhere, so was the primordial ocean. (96) As the ancestors of the North American Indians are said to have done, we cross the Bering Strait and, among the Inuit of Alaska, we also find a creation myth that presupposes the pre-existence of a watery abyss.

... till it raises him to the heavens. In it he builds huts, and finally breaks oft the lower end [separation of heavens and earth] so that no one now can get to the heavens that way. The sun too gets caught in this tree, which is just the leading mythical fact of the sun.28 The Dog-Rib Indians say that Chapewee stuck up in the ground a piece of wood which became a fir tree and grew with amazing rapidity until its top reached the heavens.
