That doesn't tell us much. How large is the sample? And how many of the
examples clearly teach creation from raw materials, rather than leaving the
issue open? One unique instance out of thousands would be possible but
perhaps unlikely. But there is no good statistical reason to doubt one
unique instance out of half a dozen.

I can't think of any ANE creation story that has
creation ex nihilo.
