Myth, Mother Goose, Nursery Rhyme all have their roots in cultures now long gone.
We today do not think much of them. We have no understanding of words that often seem completely nonsensical. But at one time...
Jamestown, Virginia, was an early British colony in the new world.
In Jamestown, there was a lively shipping trade and numerous, private dockings. One was owned by Thomas Dickory.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is a long, boring, heroic poem by Gil Gamesh, a Babylonian who plagiarized the story from ancient Sumerian sources and claimed that the events of the poem, outlandish though they are, actually happened to him. One of the poem's key episodes in the flood, which, when it is written about in the Bible, is known as the Biblical flood, but, in Gilgamesh, is referred to as The Delu...
The Law Commission has proposed the abolition of 800 antiquated laws, but there is a wealth of mythology about what is and isn't illegal.
For instance, it is well known that urinating in a public building is an offence. And yet by sticking a draw...
According to Greek mythology, the beginnings of things started with Chaos or yawning nothingness, and Genesis says 'The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep'.
Then came the 10th Commandment-'thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's'.
A government survey has shown that the use of mythical monsters in Britain is down by as much as 70% from 1950, with almost no growth in new myths - a statistic which it urges needs to be changed.
Myths once played a vital role in the running of d...
It's been flipping years since anyone has seen them, which was way back when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was their PR man, after having had them brought to his attention by a couple of Bradford lasses in 1917.
After a brief bout of stardom in the brigh...
It's said in the Bible that Jesus died and 'arose' 3 days later. Not true. In fact he'd had so much to drink at the last supper that he was quite 'pissed'.
The next day he was still drunk but managed to carry a huge wooden cross up a big hill. It's true, he did stumble a few times but it was because he was bloody well drunk.
When he was 'on' the cross it is said that someone passed up a s...
Let's get to Noah and his big, huge, enormous, gigantic, supersized bleeding ark.
It baffles me how anyone in their right mind, or indeed, anyone out of their mind, could possible 'believe' this story.
Noah is supposed to have built the vessel. OK, maybe he did. Then he loaded it with 2 of every animal on the planet. Yeah right!
First, did he go around the world taking notes of how man...
Who the hell was it that found the 10 Commandments? Moses, right? Carved in stone they were.
Well if dinosaur fossils can STILL be found after millions of years, how come we can't find the bloody stones that Moses said he found?
What the hell did he do with them, build a new bleeding patio? Or, maybe use them as a foundation for his new shed?
That reminds me, some bloody Jehova's Witn...
I am sick and tired of the Bible and its Myths, which you will have figured out if you've been 'reading' this series.
My good dog....They said Jesus walked on water. So what the bejeezers is great about that?
People in cold climates do it all the freaking time. For Pete's sake - we call the water ICE.
Joseph was said to be the biological father of Jesus. Joseph was a bleeding carpenter...
OK CHRISTIANS - NO APOLOGY FROM ME. YOU WERE WARNED IN THE FIRST 3 ARTICLES.
OK. So I find myself today speaking about the story of the poor fella Lazarus. I do believe it was said in the famous 'Bible' that Lazarus was raised from the dead by Jesus himself.
Well, let me tell you about Lazarus. He was the 'town drunk' and was forever passing out on the street.
Parents tried to keep t...
CHRISTIAN READERS, WELL FOR ONE THING, YOU SHOULDN'T EVEN BE READING THE SPOOF. BUT...IF YOU ARE....ANOTHER WARNING THAT THE FOLLOWING WILL EITHER BE 'OFFENSIVE TO YOU' OR 'AN EDUCATION'. YOUR DECISION.
THE SO CALLED MIRACLE OF THE LOAVES AND THE FISHES
The Bible (I HAVE to type it with a capital 'B' otherwise the Christians will begin to hate me).
The Bible tells a story about...
AGAIN - IF YOU ARE CHRISTIAN DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER. YOU ARE BOUND TO BE EITHER ANGRY OR 'BETTER EDUCATED' THE CHOICE IS YOURS TO MAKE.
OK. Daniel in the lion's den.
Daniel was a bit of a wimp and was bullied in school. After a few weeks into the new 'term' he told a story about being in a lion's den, to impress his classmates. There were no witnesses and so Daniel was asked to 'prove'...
WARNING! PLEASE DON'T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AS THIS MAY OFFEND YOU: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
The first thing I challenge is The Virgin Birth. Give me a break. Mary and Joseph had been 'getting it on' and she became pregnant. Panic-stricken, she made up a story and people were SO desperate to believe in 'something' as they were all afraid of dying, they believed her story.
MEXICO CITY - With the eyes of the world fixed on Mexico in light of the recent swine flu outbreak, experts have managed to trace the sometimes deadly virus back to the chupacabra.
Once considered a beast of folklore or an urban legend of sorts, t...
An unknown creature until now, the world's first Oldfoot was spotted by a hiker in rural London, England.
"It was a really weird-looking thing. The first thing that came to mind was those pictures of Bigfoot in North America, except this one l...
Oxbridgeford University Department Of Urban Mythology - Following years and years of painstaking research, scientists at Oxbridgeford University have finally confirmed that Bigfoot, the Yeti, and The Loch Ness Monster actually exist.
They stated t...
Researchers at the University of Lyef on the outskirts of Amsterdam in The Netherlands have published a paper in the New England Journal of Medicine contesting that the generally accepted Germ Theory of Disease is actually wrong.
They suggest that...
