I definitely appreciate that Buddhism doesn't try to answer these kinds of questions. It in fact seems ridiculous to me that other religions do offer answers to these questions. I can never understand why, even if there is a God of some kind, people believe that creation as detailed in any ancient writings could possibly have anything to do with reality. There is no way the people who wrote those texts could have had anything like an accurate understanding of what creation involved, even if they were guided by God in their writing. More to the point, nobody they tried to teach the story to would have been able to appreciate it in the slightest, since presumably God didn't individually dive into everybody's minds and enlighten them as to the details of it, since he wouldn't have needed to bother with prophets in that case. So no matter how you look at it the stories of creation cannot resemble reality, from any culture or religion.
