Now, if you have read the link, you would find this quote:
Mythology--"A STORY that serves to define the FUNDAMENTAL WORLDVIEW of a culture by EXPLAINING ASPECTS of the NATURAL WORLD and delineating the PSYCHOLOGICAL and social PRACTICES and IDEAS of society".
Now, look at the scientific model:
A THEORY that serves to define the FUNDAMENTAL WORLDVIEW of a culture by EXPLAINING ASPECTS of the NATURAL WORLD and delineating the PSYCHOLOGICAL and social PRACTICES and IDEAS of society.
Why is the very same ediface revealed by what should only be applied to mythology? Another thing is that mythology, from cave paintings through every past culture, extrapolates the very mind of all ancient civilization through a historical summary of those long ago empires.
The Sumerians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Egypt, Greece and even Rome have all given their "history" in mythology. It is well portrayed that the ancient word of the scientific purview was identified as a story told about that empire's state of mind. Mythology is, and was the most current established worldview of their times. There were no definitive designations of "science" in those historical tales of courage, fear, hope and victory. The "witnesses" of those times compiled their cultural viewpoints through mythologies of those times. Today, we take for granted that Science is a modern description of investigation into the "yet to be known" category. The ancients truly had to tell stories because the populace was not well trained in knowledge and literature.
Cave paintings started the "testimony" of the Seers and Shamans that interpreted their society through pictograms on cave walls. Mostly, the story was simply a reflection of their State of Mind. Obviously, the "gods", heroes and defeated foes were an attempt to portray their cultural heritage.
Gilgamesh, the Iliad and the Odessey, the mother of the two cubs as the origin of Rome and many other tales were told to explain the cultural "scientific" viewpoint of their real world scenarios. They had no bias nor did they constrain the crafts of the artists, who, in my opinion were very political and ironic about all of their stories, heros and aliases as promotors of their world.
We forgot that myth WAS THE TRUTH of that ancient civilization. There was no guild of superior knowledge, except maybe those secret, mystery schools who promulgated the very best of their current knowledge.
Mystery, Myth, adventure and arbitration between warring lands could only be told in myths. The storyteller was the "reporter" of the ancient days.
Now, any comments?
