    Ancient myths are facinating and interesting, i have looked over them quite a bit, from all over the world, and its come in handy

    like in the argument about evilution, my statement that contrary to what someone asid, most cultures dont have a myth in wich the entire world is destroyed
    that makes no logic

    hmm.. I had never heard of the ability to listen to multiple stories at once study.

    I can't find the link right now... I'll post it later
    thank you i enjoyed that biased paper(this was not aimed at you but i just saw the bias jumping off the page here), i see no mention of any literature that disuades that arguement, and plus it is a paper written by a student, who is not an expert. and some of the links are just papers from the same site, not an outside published respected scientific journal.

    multiple stories thing i dont remeber where i read that one at, but basicly women were better at listening to more than one story and keeping them seperate while men just created one big story with all that stuff happening in it.

    ok first off oriantal? who are they where are they from. did you mean oriental as in people from asia, in which you would be wrong because alot of asian traditions have myths that do include the destruction of the earth. you just have to go back before china conquored most of asia to find them. aborigane mearly means native, so are you talking about australian abrogianes? what families of native american tribes are you talking about i know in the southwest that alot of tribes have beliefs that follow the maya or aztec creation and destruciton cycles. and i only see 7+ some native american tribes, i know for a fact that on papua new guine there are over one hundred cultures how many of their myths do you konw? i know many of htem include a destruction myth. what about hindu, they have a god of destruction(who destroys the world). like said before aztec, maya, alot of indigenous african tribes, i actully think finch more groups do have a myth where the world is destroyed than don't.

    your over genralizing here finch, although some belief systems dont that does not mean that the majority of them dont. also i think treating the greek and norse as one homogenous group is very dangerous as they have shown a great deal of variation in terms of beliefs and deities.
