Dear Marwa Ali,

I'm not sure whether I totally understand what you want to achieve.
You can get all permutations of your list as follows:

Permutations[{{0., 0., 1.}, {0.181636, 0.559017,
   0.809017}, {-0.769421, 0.559017,
   0.309017}, {-0.769421, -0.559017, -0.309017}, {0.181636, \
-0.559017, -0.809017}}]

Of course each permutation contains the same set of points, just in a
different order. So, the SETS are all the same but the ORDERS are all
different. You need to define what you mean with deleting
similarities.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
