• Sorry about the delayed response. You can actually reach back as far as modern recorded history will allow. Look into Graham Hancock. He has published a few books regarding ancient Civilizations to include Myths and why each major civilization has roughly the same myths and characters to include my man Noah. Not to mention the physical evidence of their existence. It kept me interested.

  • The underground world was Hades, the river was Styx.

  • I wanted to add something to your other post but I thought it was too controversial, off topic, and I'm trying not to get hit in the head with cyber tomatoes.

    It had something to do with ancient Egyptian myths and how when we studied them in "school" (homeschool) we thought they were wild and wacky.

    Every Egyptian God had a Greek counter-part, every Greek had a Roman... It was like through our beliefs and our stories we could almost touch ancient civilizations.

    I then read some more scholarly versions of those wacky ancient Egyptian myths and realized how x rated they were compared to the versions in our world history books. Body parts were getting cut off, thrown into the river hades? styx? (it's been a few years and I'm still running OS Rebecca 1.0 - need memory upgrade.)

    I just didn't know how to work that into a comment.

    Anyway, yeah, we are pansies; candy coating everything, even history, it seems.
