Egypt’s History

Hi! Welcome back to my blog, Mismatched Mythology. Today’s post is about Egypt’s history, as you can tell by reading the title.  So, let me tell you the the story of the Egyptian gods.

There was once a god named Ra and his eternal enemy, Apophis, who was literally made of pure evil. Ra, on the other hand, was the picture of goodness and light. (Literally. Ra was the god of the sun, so kind of like Apollo from Greek mythology, but Ra is the king of the Egyptian gods, so not like Apollo and more like Zeus in this case.) Every night, as the sun set, Ra would battle Apophis, and emerging triumphant every time, start his journey through the twelve houses of night, battling monsters all the way. As you might of guessed, the twelve houses of night match the twelve hours of night, so you can only pass through if  the hour of night matches the Houses of Night. The Houses of Night are located in the Duat, which is pretty much just a whole lot of never ending layers hidden under the surface of the world.

       Anyway, eventually some other gods started popping up in history right about this period. Ra made Bastet, (But everyone calls her Bast),the cat goddess, his top lieutenant and ever since then, she is fiercely protective and loyal, like all cats are, to her master. Set, the god of evil, was also mentioned right about here, and being the god of evil, joined up with Apophis in the war against goodness and light. The war is eternal and never ending, but the gods will live and survive.

Greek myths

Hello! Today we are doing something different. Instead of learning about gods, we are learning about other myths. This post is is going to be about Greek myths.

Cyclopes are basically giants, but they only have one eye instead of two eyes like a normal person would have in their head. If you have every read or watched the movie Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Sea of Monsters, you would know that all Cyclopes are is descendants of Poseidon, the sea god, and a sea nymph, but I forget her name. You would also know that Percy Jackson has brother named Tyson, who is a Cyclopes as well. In the book (and movie), Polyphemus is mentioned. Also widely known for being one of the stops for someone from the Trojan War. But I will not go into details right now. Anyway, he was practically blinded by this person, who I know is male but I forget his name. Polyphemus is one of a couple Cyclopes who many people knew, back when the Ancient Greeks who invented them were alive, and who have their own myths.

The Trojan War is pretty simple, except I am absolutely not sure whether it is made up or not because it started with a goddess competition, but goddesses are not real, so that just may be an excuse for the real reason of the war. It is one of Greek’s many mythology mysteries that I really want to solve. The goddess competition was for who was the fairest goddess of them all. The three competitors were Hera, goddess of marriage and childbirth as well as queen of the gods and Zeus’s wife, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty.

Well, that ends my post. See you on my blog next time!
