'The Fulani Creation Story' shows that
'The Fulani Creation Story' is a myth that explains how the world and its inhabitants came into being according to the Fulani people of West Africa. The story describes how the sky and earth were separated and how various natural features like rivers, mountains, and animals came into existence.
In the story, a creator god named Ummu, who existed before anything else, is responsible for creating the world. Ummu's creation of the world is not portrayed as a chance happening or the result of a logical process, but rather as a deliberate act of divine will.
Furthermore, the story tells us that death came into the world as a result of man's disobedience to Ummu. This implies that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between man's actions and the consequences that follow.
Therefore, we can say that the correct option is "death came into the world when man set himself up as God's rival."
