What's your favorite Greek Myth?

Postby Eyes High » Fri Apr 24, 2009 10:12 am

Ok, time to get something going in here. So hope y'all don't mind if I start by asking these two simple questions which I hope will lead to multiple and complex discussions.

1. What is your favorite Greek Myth?

2. What lessons can we derive from this tale that we can apply to today's life.
I shall lift up my eyes unto the glory of the Lord.

I vaguely remember reading some of these myths in school. Can someone recommend a good collection to read?

I like the fire theft myths. Prometheus, Enki, et al.

I love all greek and roman mythology, well all mythology in general. I wouldnt say favorite.. but a good one that applies today is the flight of Icarus from Crete.

I see Obama as Icarus... Hopefully he wont get to close to the SUN... he should is giddy with his new wings as president and soaring high and mighty:)
