Foreword – Myth of Creation

A/N:
No magic, no skills, no jobs, no status and no harem. No “I’m stroooong.” (T/N: meaning the typical OP MC) Rather, the protagonist is the weakest.
The main character, who was an ordinary high-school student, sheds tears, throws up and yet grits his teeth and fights while leading his friends in another world to which he was summoned all of a sudden. This is a story about him being called the history’s worst destroyer.
* The time when the main character decides to fight is at chapter 13
* The main character’s first battle will happen around chapter 17 to chapter 19.


 

First, the death of the God of Creation and the Birth of the Gods

More ancient than thousands of thousands years, older than 10,000 times 10,000 years.
First, at the beginning, there was the God of Creation.
It was at the time when the world had yet to take its shape.
No one besides Him existed and there was nothing except Him.
He was alone.
He hoped and wondered when beings similar to Him would appear. He continued to wait patiently for that time. However, even after a time longer than hundreds of hundreds years passed, nothing other than him was born.
The God of Creation, who at last could not bear the loneliness, terminated his own life.
After he did so, seven gods were born from his body which lost its life.
The God of Fire was born from His flowing blood.
The Goddess of Water was born from His streaming tears.
The Goddess of Earth was born from His flesh.
The God of Wind was born from His last breath.
The God of Beasts was born from His genitals.
The God of Birds was born from His body hair.
And, at the end, the God of Humans was born from His head.

Second, the creation of the world and its people

The God of Fire, who was born first, created the sun by placing the burning heart of the God of Creation in the sky since the world was far too dark. Because of this, the world was filled with light and wrapped in a heat similar to burning.
Thereupon he created lizards, snakes and such from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the God of Fire.
After the God of Fire granted some of them power, they turned into Dinosaurians.
Because the world was almost burnt up due to the sun, the Goddess of Water created the clouds to block the the light, and made them rain to suppress the heat.
Thereupon, fish were born from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the Goddess of Water.
After the Goddess of Water granted some of them power, they turned into Merman.
Because the world was almost covered by water, the Goddess of Earth made sure that the body of the God of Creation did not sink so that it could serve as continents and mountains.
Thereupon insects were born from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the Goddess of Earth.
When the Goddess of Earth granted some of them power, they turned into Dwarves.
Because the world became too rugged and solid, the God of Wind blew his breath and evened the ground.
Thereupon, trees and grasses sprouted from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the God of Wind.
Once the God of Wind granted some of them power, they turned into Elves.
Seeing the world was about to be covered by numerous plants, the God of Beasts plucked the vegetation that had spread too much.
Thereupon, beasts were born from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the God of Beasts.
Once the God of Beasts granted some of them power, they turned into Zoan.
Since the world was about to overflow with the corpses of beasts which had increased too much, the God of Birds cleared those away.
Thereupon, birds were born from the body of the God of Creation, and they praised the God of Birds.
Once the God of Beasts granted some of them power, they turned into Harpyans.
The God of Humans, who heard the worshipping voices of the animals, which were flooding into the world, for their respective god, said this,

“I also want to create beings which worship me, like my siblings did.”

Once he said so, humans were born from the body of the God of Creation.
However, the born humans had no claws, no fangs, no feathers and no scales. They were weak creatures to the degree that they would probably die right away if left as they are.

“Aah! I wonder, why did I end up creating such weak creatures?”

The God of Humans grieved and moaned greatly.
The God of Fire, who was unable to just watch that, taught the humans the knowledge how to use fire.
However, the God of Humans didn’t stop to lament despite that.
Next, the Goddess of Water granted the humans the knowledge how to use water and taught them how to catch fish.
However, the God of Humans didn’t stop to lament despite that.
Furthermore, the Goddess of Earth granted them the knowledge how to cultivate the soil to obtain food, the God of Wind granted them the knowledge how to procure fruits from the vegetation, the God of Beasts granted them the knowledge how to fight against beasts and the God of Birds granted them the knowledge how to drop birds.
The God of Humans, who was finally satisfied with that, stopped grieving and said following to the humans,

“You guys can use fire, catch fish, cultivate the ground, pick fruits, hunt beasts and drop birds. It’s fine for you to flourish grandly while obtaining everything in this world.”

Thus the humans were given the greed to steal every single possession of this world by the God of Humans.
