Listener comments!

  8:13pm Matthyou Springwater:

Wow, thrilling conclusion to the Japanese Creation! Never heard this one before!

It was Orpheus and Eurydice in the Greek myth, who also had the man lead the woman out of the Underworld, but "turned around" and doomed her.
  8:13pm Fredericks:

Nice stuff here.
  8:14pm Fredericks:

How do you pronounce "Eurydice "?
  8:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Oops, thought I had changed my Hearty White moniker too! :)

"The story of Eurydice has strong parallels to the Japanese myth of Izanami, as well as to the Mayan myth of Itzamna and Ixchel, the Indian myth of Savitri and Satyavan, the Akkadian/Sumerian myth of Inanna's descent to the underworld, and the Biblical story of Lot and his wife." Wonder what that says about humanity, what we think about ourselves!
  8:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredericks: Eurydice, I think: "You rid diss see"
Avatar 8:18pm Cruciferous:

It is amazing to compare the ancient stories from once isolated pockets of the world.
  8:19pm Fredericks:

Check! Myths, Matt. Stories trump facts! Joe Campbell started rumbling around my brain.
Avatar 8:20pm Cruciferous:

Ahhhh... Yes! Good ol' JC!
  8:20pm Fredericks:

Wish he'd stop.
  8:24pm Matt from Springfield:

"Follow your bliss"!
  8:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cruciferous: Yes, particularly the Flood Legend, of Gilgamesh and others, possibly influenced by it.

At the end of the Ice Age, right before Western civilization started, melting glaciers flooded areas, the Bering Strait, Black Sea, etc. Many ancient settlements have been found under the Black Sea that flooded--the tales might have originated from people who experienced it!
  8:27pm Fredericks:

This our modern "scientific " myth.
  8:31pm Matt from Springfield:

YES people, be STEWARDS dammit!
  8:31pm Fredericks:

Native Americans saw the oceans disappear. Some wanted to go see where it went. The elders said they needed to build canoes.
  8:34pm Fredericks:

This is beautiful.
  8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Sure is.
  8:39pm Matt from Springfield:

And a modern "Aristocrunk" Creation myth!
  8:45pm Crall:

Did the antique music program go kaputz?
Avatar 8:47pm Cruciferous:

as far as i know it'll be back....
  8:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Fun show and great series! Hope you return, Mr. Green!
