Top Ten Best Types of Mythology


The Top Ten

1 Greek Mythology

Very interesting to read about.

No words

Pretty overrated at times but worth it since it is too cool to be true.

The best, most popular, and interesting kind!

2 Norse Mythology

Easily the most interesting. On one hand there are so few sources, but on other hand the ones we have tend to be more consistent, though not always. But most of them were written by Christians, of course, as well as Arabic people, since the Old Norse people did not tend to be well-versed in written languages before the Christianization of the nations. It has amazing, epic, but also surreal tales of a creature having their feet breed with one another and birthing beings out of his armpits, and has all the trappings of modern, or 1950s, fantasy literature. Even today's fantasy literature. But only it still feels fresh and its own. The idea of a world tree with many different worlds planted on it are very fascinating to me as well. We have had mountains, humanoid bodies and many other kinds of cosmologies across the world, but I love my ancestors' idea of a giant tree the most. Then there are the people of our nations themselves. They were big believers in honour, winning honour and ...more

So brilliantly fascinating, from Ymir to Ragnarök. So many brilliant stories, I recommend the book 'norse mythology' by Neil Gaman for anyone even remotely interested in it.

3 Arthurian Mythology
4 Irish Mythology
5 Egyptian Mythology

Dude this mythology should be in top 3. They had very powerful hero gods and villain gods. For instance Set was strong enough to move stars with his bare hands and could potentially be an ancient description of a planet buster by modern comic standards.
Egyptian gods have gone through some of the craziest hell back and forth. Horus had infinite stamina and could fight Set for 3 days straight, no good, no water. Amon Ra is basically the living tribunal then. There's Sekhmet who almost made mankind extinct when the Ra was pissed off. There were even villain magicians who could match Thoth's wisdom as a result of practicing heka( magic) to its fullest. Egypt also had some dope mythologies. They should be far up from where they are now.

Egyptian mythology is great. It should be far higher than 5th. Ancient Egyptian mythology is one of the earliest mythologies to make use of early Chemistry. It is also the oldest on the list and was one of the longest worshiped religion. Classic heroes include Ra/Amon Ra, Hours, Osiris, Isis and many more.

It should be first it is my belief!
