Egyptian God Family Tree — Infographic

Egyptian God Family Tree

Trying to keep up with the lineage of most gods and goddesses in ancient mythologies is quiet a task.  However, in today’s infographic, Korwin Briggs at Veritable Hokum does a great job at tackling this very thing in the Ancient Egyptian pantheon. He’s also done the same for the Greek and Norse gods, and rest assured, I’ll post them soon as well!

An Anthology of Mythical Creatures — Infographic

An Anthology of Mythical Creatures

I love myths, mythology, and legends!  Today’s inforgraphic is a wonderful collection of some of the mythical creatures from almost every culture’s tales.  A wonderful mix of the well known, wild, and weird, there will be some you are familiar with and others you may have never heard of before, but it’s all very insightful.  [VIA]

Common “Mythconceptions” — Infographic

Common “Mythconceptions”

These are the things that the Mythbusters love!  Today’s infographic is a great collection of 52 common myths and falsehoods that we commonly see as fact now, but are really unproven or untrue.  Different from Urban Legends in that these are simply one off statements of fact, most considered to be “common knowledge”, these ideas either have no basis in fact, or we just always had the facts wrong.  In fact, many of these on the list surprised me!  The circles indicate the virulence of the idea, and they are all color coded by category.  [VIA]
