Discussion: Destruction Myths

         

What  purpose do you think these destruction stories serve? What do they say  about humans in general? What do they say about monotheism, polytheism  and other forms of theism? Finally, do some research on these three  recent natural catastrophes – the earthquake in Haiti (2010), the  tsunami in Japan (2011) and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans (2005). How  were/are these events being mythologized, i.e. What kinds of  explanations were/are offered for why these events happened? Please make  your own comments, BUT ALSO attach AT LEAST one article or video that  help explain how these events have been explained. Can you identify any  functions, elements, specific concepts, archetypes, etc. of mythology in  these explanations?
