Iíve always been fascinated by folklore and mythology Ė How did ancient people think the world began? How did they explain natural phenomenon before science? What is the same and different between one groupís stories, and another seemingly unrelated, groupís stories? As Iíve read and studied more, Iíve learned that there are scholars who spend their livesí work studying these questions and more.
My hope for all of us on this site and forum Ė me as the editor, you as the reader, and those of you who leave comments Ė is that we will learn stories from various cultures. We will explore how these stories work together to contribute to humanityís understanding of itself and where we came from.
Please note, when we talk about current religions, it is not to argue which is true or to try to convert somebody; we will only look at it as another mythology to be explored.
I look forward to working with you, sharing with you, and learning about folklore and mythology together.
