Mythology anyone? posted 28 Oct 2006, 23:10 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Im surprised I havent posted this before but mythology is one of my biggest interests and I was curious if anyone else was as fascinated with it as I am. Im really into Egyptian, Norse, Celtic, and well just about any type. And if you are interested in mythology, what mythological creature, god, etc, would you associate yourself or is your favorite. Favorite creature is Fenrir/Fenris. Mythological hero: Odyseus God: Osiris view post

Nephilim=Children of Fallen angels. Wikipedia's definition: In the Torah and several non-canonical Jewish and early Christian writings, nephilim (in Hebrew הנּפלים means those causing others to fall) are a people created by the crossbreeding of the "sons of God" (benei elohim, בני האלהים) and the "daughters of men". (See Genesis 6:1.) The word nephilim is loosely translated as giants or titans in some translations of the Bible, and is left as nephilim in others. Theres alot more story to it and its a great topic. view post

WP, have you checked out Gene Wolfe's Latro books? Strongly recommended for the mythology buffs (or the Wizard Knight duology, if Norse myth is your thing). The new book, [i:2bjo5tv6]Soldier of Sidon[/i:2bjo5tv6], is out tomorrow, I believe. Favorite god: Sylvanus (Roman god of the forests). ;) Odin and Pan are good, too. view post

Mythology posted 13 Nov 2006, 03:11 by Lythade, Candidate

For people who like Mythology and Si-Fi i sugest looking into the Stargate SG-1 Tv show.... it goes into Eygptian Mythology quite deeply but it dose put a different spin on it....besides you know it's got to be good when it's going into it's 10th season!!!! :D that means it even beats out Star Trek :P he he he he!!!!!! view post


posted 13 Nov 2006, 04:11 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Yes Stargate is a very good show although I did like to Atlantis as much, its very interesting how Egyptian Mythology is tied into it. view post


posted 13 Nov 2006, 04:11 by Lythade, Candidate

i don't really like the Atlantis stargate i don't know why...maybe if i acctually watched it i'd get to enjoy it... view post


posted 13 Nov 2006, 04:11 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

I dont understand why they even made the Atlantis series why ruin something thats good already. view post


posted 13 Nov 2006, 04:11 by Lythade, Candidate

i believe they made the Atlantis series because the fans wanted to see atlantis and by that time they (they as in Daniel) had already figured out that Atlantis wasn't on Earth and that it might even be in another galixey so they made another show view post

Eh o well I just really never got into it it seems different from the original to me for some reason. view post


posted 13 Nov 2006, 04:11 by Lythade, Candidate

thats cause it is different they did that perposley because they figured that since SG-1 was so succesful that it would be a bad idea to copy it so they made a different show and based it around Atlantis instead of the Stargate view post

Well I know that I was just stating to why I couldnt get into it. view post

All good things must come to an end. view post
