Well, whether you are from Greece,Scotland,Egypt,China or MARS, you probably have some beliefs that run in your family. Some of these are myths, about gods and extraterrestrial creatures, brave ( or maybe incredibly 'out-of-your-mind-in-a-really-not-smart-way' ) and adventurous acts!
I can tell you about the mythology I'm REALLY interested in.
Greece and Roman mythology really appeal to me, as they amuse me as well.
Finding my passion of Mythology was definitely thanks to Rick Riodan, author of the Percy Jackson Series, which I recommend to anyone who likes fantasy. This is really where reality and my passion collide.Thanks to this author, I have also found an interest to Egyptian mythology! If you haven't read the Kane Chronicles... I mean c'mon. Those of you who have read it know what I am talking about.
So, whether you believe or not, why not be passionate? Mythology also ties into my passion of putting things together, evidences of history, clues and such. I am very intrigued to know that we have heard of these either through generations of passing down the stories or written history, found by archealogists.
Who knows? Maybe something will interest you?
If you don't know where to start , start reading some books.
