Creation of Taiwan

A myth submitted to the site by Chris May

Taiwan, me

The country of compassion and sympathy, the land of love and life, the region of diversity and fertile, Taiwan, was created under the tear of the divine. The gorgeous goddess of creation and destruction Hera came to earth with her baby child Zeth. Expecting humans to be understanding and respectful towards others, Hera was horrified by the violence, hatred and suffers that existed in mankind. The conquistadors in the Americas, the crusades in Europe and the war in China are conflicts that Hera saw and absolutely despise. She soon arrived at the Pacific, the ocean of peace and tranquility.

Stunned and electrified by this vast gentle ocean, Hera decided to create a land of love and peace. With all the negatives she saw around the world, she shed a tear, a tear that dropped quietly on to the Pacific Ocean and became an island. In order to bring life and love to this land, and promise that peace be maintained, she sacrificed her baby on the land and created all living things.

The baby was crying and rolling around. Tears became rivers that originated civilization; the bumps he created became valleys and mountains. His hair became all kinds of plants and his flesh became animals. The heart of the baby, the heart that had been blessed by the gorgeous goddess Hera, became the Holy Spirit in every living organism. Henceforth, there was no war on this land, hatred was eliminated, and peace and love were achieved. Taiwan was created.
