Surely, such commonalities among so many disparate peoples must mean something, yet we are encouraged to view these stories as "just myths" with no deeper meaning. Few researchers seem interested in trying to decipher those meanings to see if they might have a real, physical, historical origin. Even suggesting it brings derision. Yet, tales of a dark, mud-covered earth where nobody had any fire are pretty specific details to have in common. It's not something that can be dismissed as coincidence. Claiming that they all go back to a time hundreds of thousands of years ago, before humans were as widespread as today, doesn't make sense. A hundred thousand years is a long time for a campfire story to survive. Whatever happened, it was more recent, it was worldwide, and it was so terrifying that we have retained a collective memory of it to this day, in the form of stories that we call myths. I wonder how long it will be before mainstream scientists finally see the light.
