In the academic fields of mythology, mythography, or folkloristics, a myth (mythos) is a sacred story concerning the origins of the world or how the world and the creatures in it came to be in their present form. The active beings in myths are generally gods and heroes. Myths often are said to take place before recorded history begins. In saying that a myth is a sacred narrative, what is meant is that a myth is believed to be true by people who attach religious or spiritual significance to it. Use of the term by scholars does not imply that the narrative is either true or false. See also legend and tale.A myth in popular use is something that is widely thought to be false. This usage, which is often pejorative, arose from labeling the religious myths and beliefs of other cultures as being incorrect, but it has spread to cover non-religious beliefs as well. Because of this usage, many people take offense when the religious narratives they believe to be true are called myths (see Religion and mythology for more information). This usage is frequently confused with legend, fiction, fairy tale, folklore, fable, and urban legend, each of which has a distinct meaning in academia.It should be known that myths have historical points in them an example of this would be Homers The Odyssey where a young prince leaves to goto fight in the Trojan War. The Trojan War as we know is a historical point in time however, the odds of said prince with the same name are unlikely but even more unlikely than the various beings he meets on his extended trip to get home.Urban myth is an alternate (not academic) term for urban legendA myth is something that is born from truth, but not necessarily 100% true. Ancient peoples used myths to explain things usually in nature that they could not understand. For example- Anc

although it is very interesting some of the hypothosis's are not up todate it is a good read if you are interested in this type of history

I read the contents of this book at his website and is totally lunacy. He starts by stating "The Quichua-Aymara race which inhabited Peru was inferior to the Mexican in general mental culture, if not in mental capacity, is is proved by its inability to invent any method of written communication or any adequate time-reckoning. In imitative art, too, the Peruvians were weak, save in pottery and rude modelling, and their religion savoured much more of the materialistic, and was altogether of a lower cultus."

Maybe he needs a history lesson, here goes
-The first civilization in the Americas was in Caral, Peru about 5,000ac. That is 3,500 years before the first civilization in Mexico, the Olmecas
-The Aztec is really not considered an empire in the true sense of the world. It was a confederacy
-The maya is a central america civilization but for some reason, mexicans will want you to believe it is of mexican descent only. One of the reasons of is decline was is poor irrigation and agriculture knowldedge.
-The inca empire is the culmination of thousands of years of civilizations before inca existed. They domesticated cotton and built pyramids at the same time that Egypt.
-Most of the crops that ancient mexican civilization developed came from South America, peru specially.
-Also read Christian Duverger studies that point to andean migration to the michoacan region. The ancient tarasca civilization that settled in mexico pacific region has its linguistic roots in andean culture. Mr Duverger claims that ancient peruvians had direct contact with ancient mexicans and not the other way around..

Do not recommend this book
