In this second part of the PBS series Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth, Moyers and Campbell discuss creation myths and the tremendous consequences they have for civilizations. Campbell points to the Judeo-Christian story of creation and how man is set apart from nature and God through the fall of sin. He contrasts that with Eastern religions, where the myths teach that man should be in tune with nature. Campbell emphasizes his belief that the importance of myth is in the metaphors they teach and not in their literal interpretations. He suggests that the old-time religion must be continually abandoned to create new myths that confront the ever-changing challenges that arise in new eras and civilizations. And while the troubles of any time often seem overwhelming, Campbell believes that one can always tap into the vitality of life to wake up from the nightmare of history.
