    Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece and is part of religion in modern Greece and around the world, known as Hellenismos. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.[1] Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts.

Specifically, we’re going to look today at stories from around the world that establish or amplify the idea that the errors of women have brought bad things into the world. We’re talking about the idea that death and disease and pain came into the world as a result of human (specifically woman human) action, and that men should therefore be considered superior to women. This idea, which on its face may sound a little out there to our modern ears, is persistent and pernicious. We’re interested in looking at the ways that stories make social orders.

Ireland’s long history is riddled with ancient mythology and folklore. Ireland’s ancient societies, the Druids and the Celtics, believed in the power of magic and many of these beliefs spread to modern day legends told again and again across the country. Stories of warriors with all the knowledge of the world, fairies playing pranks on farm owners and leprechauns hiding their gold at the end of a rainbow add to the mysterious appeal of Ireland. 10. The Banshee The Banshee was a woman who carried with her an omen of death. Sometimes you saw the Banshee as an old woman dressed in rags, sometimes you saw her as a young and beautiful girl and sometimes you saw her as a wash woman, ringing out bloody clothing . Whenever she was seen, she let out a horrible cry and legend has it this cry brought death to any family that heard it. King James I of Scotland thought he was approached by a Banshee. Shortly after, he died at the Earl of Atholl. 9. Pookas The Pookas are a certain type of fairy- one bent on creating havoc in the mortal world. The Pooka appeared at night across rural Ireland and the seaboard. On a good day, the Pooka would cause destruction on a farm- tearing down fences and disrupting the animals. On a bad day, the Pooka would stand outside the farmhouse and call the people outside by name. If anyone came out, the Pooka would carry them away. The Pookas also loved to mess with the ships pulling away from Ireland, and were blamed for many shipwrecks along the rocky coast. 8. Changelings As legend has it, female fairies often give birth to deformed children. Since the fairies prefer visually pleasing babies, they would go into the mortal world and swap with a healthy human baby, leaving behind a changeling. While the changeling looked like a human baby, it carried none of the same emotional characteristics. The changeling was only happy when misfortune or grief happened in the house. The changeling legend has lasted for centuries. William Shakespeare talks of a changeling in his play, “A Midsummer’s Night Dream.” Three hundred years later, Scarlett O’Hara believed Rhett Butler’s illegitimate child was a changeling in “Gone with the Wind.” →Subscribe for new videos every day! http://bit.ly/toptenzsubscribe →10 Reasons Bruce Lee was a Superhuman: http://bit.ly/1Hl4mVu Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Despite Demeter being the goddess of the harvest and the fertility of the earth she only had one daughter, Persephone. After Hades abducted Persephone, Demeter grieved and subjected the world to famine. Zeus finally intervened so Demeter and Persephone could be reunited. Demeter was granted four months each year with her daughter, who would remain with Hades for the other eight. According to some versions of Greek mythology Hephaestus, aka the god of fire, was the son of Hera alone, who conceived him in order to get back at Zeus for bringing forth Athena from his head. As a result of Hera’s desperate attempt to get back at Zeus, Hephaestus was born deformed and was the only ugly god among the Olympians. As if Hephaestus wasn’t unfortunate enough already, his wife Aphrodite was unfaithful to him and had an affair with Ares. She even gave birth to two children by Ares: Eros (Cupid), and Harmonia (Harmony). Prostitutes considered Aphrodite their patron. This happened mainly because prostitutes in ancient Greece had to be extraordinarily beautiful and desirable and so they believed the goddess of beauty was their protector. For this reason Corinth was the center of Aphrodite’s worship since it was the city with the most beautiful and desired prostitutes of antiquity known as Laides. Zeus’s humble servants were named Force and Violence. With servants like these you can only imagine what kind of a beast the boss was. Apollo was known for having many love affairs with both mortals and goddesses, that’s why you might often hear some men with a big ego refer to themselves as Apollo. The real Apollo, however, justified his fame and name by dating all nine Muses at once. The Muses were gorgeous goddesses known for their beauty and inspired art and music. and more...

From the most terrifying monsters to gifts from the ancient gods, we now clearly understand what inspired them to write these stories. And this is why today, we are showing you 10 Ancient Greek Myths that Turned Out to be True. In Ancient Greece, mermaids and sirens had such a beautiful voice that any sailor who would hear it would jump into the water to join them. And hundred years later, people still believe that they saw a woman with a tail in the water. One of them was John Smith, and he claimed that he saw a green-haired woman swimming in the water which was “by no means unattractive.” Medusa was one of the most terrifying women in Greek Mythology. With snakes on her head, she was so hideous that anyone who looked at her immediately turned to stone. And no, we won’t show you a woman with snakes on her head. But something can actually end your life just by looking at it, and it’s called the Elephant’s Foot. You’ll have to watch our video to see what it is.

Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece and is part of religion in modern Greece and around the world, known as Hellenismos. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.[1] Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and mythological creatures. These accounts initially were disseminated in an oral-poetic tradition; today the Greek myths are known primarily from Greek literature. The oldest known Greek literary sources, Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, focus on events surrounding the Trojan War. Two poems by Homer's near contemporary Hesiod, the Theogony and the Works and Days, contain accounts of the genesis of the world, the succession of divine rulers, the succession of human ages, the origin of human woes, and the origin of sacrificial practices. Myths are also preserved in the Homeric Hymns, in fragments of epic poems of the Epic Cycle, in lyric poems, in the works of the tragedians of the fifth century BC, in writings of scholars and poets of the Hellenistic Age, and in texts from the time of the Roman Empire by writers such as Plutarch and Pausanias. Archaeological findings provide a principal source of detail about Greek mythology, with gods and heroes featured prominently in the decoration of many artifacts. Geometric designs on pottery of the eighth century BC depict scenes from the Trojan cycle as well as the adventures of Heracles. In the succeeding Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, Homeric and various other mythological scenes appear, supplementing the existing literary evidence.[2] Greek mythology has had an extensive influence on the culture, arts, and literature of Western civilization and remains part of Western heritage and language. Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in the themes.

top 10 fictional creatures from myths in books and popular tales that were actually real Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: david.f@valnetinc.com Other Videos You Might Like Most Mysterious Creatures Found On The Beach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq1JxL0iswg Shocking Post Mortem Photos Of Famous People https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-xiwPmLgP0 Description: There is a fine line between mythical lore and, you know, reality. Just ask the countless folks who swear to have encountered every type of fantastical creature from Bigfoot to mermaids to Sasquatch to Tupac Shakur. These sightings could be cases of people’s minds playing tricks on them or made up stories to make themselves more interesting, but is it possible that they might just possibly be telling the truth? Without legitimate, clear and non-doctored photo evidence, these claims are both implausible and impossible to prove, but remain impossible to absolutely rule out. That may seem like a ridiculous pretext, but the very nature of myth-making often serves as a bridge between the imagined and the real. Very few legends are pulled strictly from one’s dreamed up imagination. Instead, stories often carry some basis in fact and personal experience that are then exaggerated, embellished upon and played up with added flair. A regular old pig can become a ferocious wild boar, a snake can be transformed into a massive serpent, a man with above-average height can soon become a towering giant. As those stories get passed along from generation to generation, the true details become filtered out and we are left with the hyperbole, making the myth all the more thrilling, albeit still not entirely fictional. We may not even realize it, but this instinctive tendency to massage, twist and tweak the truth through the sharing of fables has impacted our present understanding of the world. Some of what we believe to be myth based on simply hearing it as part of a bedtime story might not have been entirely made up. This list contains 10 creatures who have served as the basis for fantastical stories and lore passed down through both literary and oral history. But on top of being firmly entrenched in the imaginations of those who have heard the stories, these creatures – or some less dramatized variation of them – also happen to have existed in real life. Take the legend of the Imoogi, for example, a serpent that has long been a staple of Korean folklore with a similar-looking relative whose giant fossilized remains were discovered just eight years ago. We modern humans are skeptical by nature, generally distrustful of what we hear from others, a trait that has only grown in an age of instant communication where the line between legitimate information and hearsay presented as fact has been blurred. Most of us have grown accustomed to a lifetime of being regaled by thrilling stories, only to find those stories to have little basis in reality. For these 10 familiar tales, then, it might be worth setting your skepticism aside and appreciating that these remarkable, ostensibly fictionalized accounts do, in fact, carry a firm basis in reality. Yep, these things are actually real, which is pretty terrifying to think that we once – and, in some cases, could still – live amongst them.

In which Mike Rugnetta sits you down for a little talk about myth as a way to construct or reinforce social orders. Specifically, we’re going to look today at stories from around the world that establish or amplify the idea that the errors of women have brought bad things into the world. We’re talking about the idea that death and disease and pain came into the world as a result of human (specifically woman human) action, and that men should therefore be considered superior to women. This idea, which on its face may sound a little out there to our modern ears, is persistent and pernicious. We’re interested in looking at the ways that stories make social orders. We’ll look at Abrahamic, Greek, and Japanese creation stories that have, over the millennia, served to push something of a social order agenda.

Danger Dolan: 10 Disturbing Stories From Mysterious Islands https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgMC3JMAIyA Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: david.f@valnetinc.com Description: The stories and myths of ancient civilizations have haunted our history classes for centuries. Because we know little to nothing about history that is older than 500 years and only have ancient writings and art to depend on, we can only make speculations and assumptions based on physical evidence left behind that wasn’t necessarily told to preserve history, but instead, help the kids fall asleep at night. For example, tales of Merlin building the infamous Stonehenge with magic have been the strongest leads historians ever had to explain how these massively heavy stones ended up in the middle of Great Britain. But thankfully, scientists and historians have started to work together to piece history back together. With that, some of the greatest mysteries of history have been debunked. And thanks to the far reaches of the Internet, people are now able to share their own independent research faster than ever and collaborate with experts. With today’s technology, it is not more challenging to present research that won’t be debunked in a matter of minutes because scientists and researchers know so much more now than they did even just 20 years ago. This video contains ten mysteries about ancient civilizations that have now been debunked. We suppose you can call this video either a buzzkill or explaining some of the greatest mysteries of the world. But just because Merlin didn’t build Stonehenge or that the Easter Island statues didn’t walk themselves over to the coastline doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything wondrous or splendid left in the world. If anything, it praises the brilliancy and innovations of man.

Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in the themes. - According to Classical-era mythology, after the overthrow of the Titans, the new pantheon of gods and goddesses was confirmed. Among the principal Greek gods were the Olympians, residing atop Mount Olympus under the eye of Zeus. (The limitation of their number to twelve seems to have been a comparatively modern idea.)[32] Besides the Olympians, the Greeks worshipped various gods of the countryside, the satyr-god Pan, Nymphs (spirits of rivers), Naiads (who dwelled in springs), Dryads (who were spirits of the trees), Nereids (who inhabited the sea), river gods, Satyrs, and others. In addition, there were the dark powers of the underworld, such as the Erinyes (or Furies), said to pursue those guilty of crimes against blood-relatives.[33] In order to honor the Ancient Greek pantheon, poets composed the Homeric Hymns (a group of thirty-three songs).[34] Gregory Nagy regards "the larger Homeric Hymns as simple preludes (compared with Theogony), each of which invokes one god".[35] In the wide variety of myths and legends that Greek mythology consists of, the gods that were native to the Greek peoples are described as having essentially corporeal but ideal bodies. According to Walter Burkert, the defining characteristic of Greek anthropomorphism is that "the Greek gods are persons, not abstractions, ideas or concepts".[36] Regardless of their underlying forms, the Ancient Greek gods have many fantastic abilities; most significantly, the gods are not affected by disease, and can be wounded only under highly unusual circumstances. - If you enjoyed "Myths and Legends of Ancient Greece and Rome - FULL Audio Book - by E.M.

Mythicist Milwaukee is a group dedicated to studying the mythicist position - researching the parallels between ancient civilizations' beliefs and today's modern religious practices. Our goal? To take some of the complicated research presented by the best in the business and distill it into easy-to-digest pieces of information that make you say, "Really? I didn't know that. I want to learn more." We want to inspire you to question. To inspire you to dig deeper. To find the origins of the beliefs shared by many all over the world today.Be warned, if you find mythicism to be distasteful to your current mythological beliefs, than this video may not be for you. If you decide to watch it anyway, we are definitely open to constructive criticism and we hope you enjoy the show. Well what do I know, I'm just the video guy, here's the Webster full definition of MYTHICIST. 1 : a student or interpreter of myths. 2 : an adherent of the view that apparently supernatural persons or events have their origin in human imagination especially as revealed in myth. Your's very truly, Adam Montney
