    For Me

    Ah for me the old Myths tell me of how people of another time and place related to the world around them. They tell of ancient seas and far away lands.  They inspired and taught lessons. The old myths and lore still do the same for me. They have taught me so much and...

    Well I Do Too

    Crazy as it sounds, there is another topic in this group called 'Well, I do' where in the thread this fellow and I got to discussing how christianity is myth as well and how much of it was stolen from earlier cultures. He, of course, disagreed, with his only evidence...

    The Source

    Myths all have their origines in facts, the real issue is that the facts from which these stories came to be may not be the ones we thought or expected. Excalibur was said to be a sword of unimaginable power, able to break through rocks... it might have simply been a blade made...

    Oh it does, I mean a lot of the earth creation

    I Love It

    Mythology and History are two things I love!  And of course I believe that every religion or system of beliefs has a bit of truth to it. Just that no one religion has all of the truth in it. Where have I read that before? I believe in this but I'm sure those aren...
