Big Myths 5 Centuries ago
Ptolemy ... His astronomy predicted the motions of planets accurately, it just was not showing the actual relationship of the planets and sun, and it was more complicated than the actual relationship.
Divine Right Of Kings ... A very convenient myth, especially royalty.
Paracelsus ... Better than most doctors of the time.
The Noble Savage ... Europe meets Amerinds and starts the mythologizing of them.
Sikhs ... A culture and religion is born in this century
Wallpaper ... Here is where the myth that wallpaper can be used to decorate: I have known couples who went to divorce court after trying to wallpaper rooms in their house.
Human Sacrifice ... Just a little story from the 5th century before now.
