As per Hindu mythology, Brahma was born from a (kamala) lotus springing from Vishnu's navel and created the world through his daughter Saraswati. According to Manu Smriti, the self- existent Lord manifested to dispel the darkness enveloping universe. He created the waters and deposited a seed that became a golden egg from which he was born as Brahma.

There was no first man according to Original vedas, it lists the creation in 7 steps or 7 Avatar to reach to final manav avtar, It closely resembles Darwin's Theory of origin of species.
