The greatest emphasis on global catastrophe is probably to be found in Mesoamerica.
According to Aztec traditions, the continuing conflict
between the deities associated with each of the four
quarters of the universe has entailed a series of
The first era ended with the world being consumed by jaguars, a great hurricane, and the third by fire and the fourth by flood destroyed the second.
We are now in the fifth world, which is destined to be devastated by earthquakes.
Hopi, Greece, Aztec, and a few others have had the same flood myths. All seem to have similiar characteristics of a global catastrophe... And all seem
to be from a patriarchal society.. There is good and evil in each flood myth, and the outcome always seems to be repopulation.
Funny how all myths have a global catastrophe based off of being being "wicked".
Wicked = arrogant/selfish/careless/____ect
I'm not sure what's going on but it's quite obvious global catastrophe seems to happen based off of people's behaviours.
