Today's winner Is: Angela Quarino, Solvay, N.Y. Mythology arose because man felt a need to explain what happened all around him in the world. Me created stories, or myths, that explained why the sun rose, why the corn grew, why people died, who ; Created the universe, in fact, about everything that puzzled him. In primitive times, man believed in many gods. So there was a god that lived to the corn, a god that threw a hammer across the sky when he was angry and that was thunder, a god who, made the sea move, a god who made tire, and so on. They gave the gods names, praised them and worshipped them. Mythologies an over the world reflected the life of the people, the climate, how much progress they had made. It is an nteresting thing that many mythologists from different parts of the" world are similar, and sometimes even the same story is told in their myths. If there Is one mythology that has had the greatest effect on our lives, so that even today we make references to it constantly, it is the mythology of ancient Greece. It was actually the religion of the Greeks and existed five hundred years before Christ. For example, the Greeks built beautiful temples in which they worshiped their gods. The architecture of those temples is still being copied in cities all over the world. The Lincoln-Memorv< ial in Washington, D.C. is modeled after ancient Greek temples. An "atlas" is a book of maps. It is named after Atlas, and the Greeks believed he held up the world on his shoulders. If you .think of speed, you might think of Mercury, the Greek god with wings on his feet. A- man with muscles is strong as Hercules. -The "vulcanizing" process is named after Vulcan, the god of fire. "At first, myths were told by people, from one generation to another; Later on they were written down, and some of the greatest literature of the world consists of the great mythologies of various nations and peoples.
