I'd like to interject something here.
Originally, the reasons given for not considering the ancient texts were based on things like:
1) it's not scientifically possible for-
--a) people to fly in the sky, therefore, references to gods and/or people flying in the sky are myth
--b) create new life from anything other than a womb, therefore, references to people being created outside a womb, are myth
--c) create hybrid species, therefore, references to cross breeding and animorphs are myth
--d) destroy two cities at once, destroy entire planets, or make large amounts of water move, therefore, references to such things are myth
2) this was followed up shortly by-
--a) the greek texts are fabrications because the ancient greeks couldn't write, therefore anything they say is a falsehood
--b) the hindu texts are fabrications
--c) the roman texts are fabrications
--d) the babylonian, assyrian, chinese, japanese, egyptian, mayan, inca, aztec, texts are fabrications
--e) the torah, hebrew pseudopigraphia, dead sea scrolls and the bible, are fabrications
3) which gave rise to-
--a) the even more ancient cities mentioned in these texts, such as Troy, never existed.
AND ALL OF THIS WAS DETERMINED BY ACADEMIA BEFORE THE ADVENT OF ARCHAEOLOGY.
Today, we are lead to believe all those ancient texts are mythological fabrications because some pre-enlightenment professors decided the ancient
world was one big lie, AND they did this before they had any evidence to support their conclusions.
40 years later, it was determined that the ancient greeks could write. The professors who wrote on the subject and trashed ancient greece, never
recanted. When confronted, their excuse was -- "well you don't actually believe the stories in their epics, do you?" It didn't matter whether or
not the initial hypothesis was right, as far as they were concerned, there was no evidence "and besides, TROY NEVER EXISTED"....that is, till it was
found 1000 years later.
This goes on and on. Did you know Gilgamesh never existed? That is, till they discovered his city in the desert, along with a monument dedicated to
his burial spot.
Just ignore the rest of the information, call our ancestors what you will. But do so at your own intellectual peril.
