Mythology is defined as the body of myths or belief system associated with legends and folktale to represent an event, individual or institution. These concepts of Greek Powers (Gods and Goddess) legends have been passed from generation to generation and now taught culturally.
of Deity is central to the way humans see themselves and their societies; a strong father god effects one kind of culture while a nurturing mother goddess reflects another. The way we think and act as individuals and as national and cultural entities is directly affected by our myths of deity. The question of gender has always been crucial to humankind’s understanding of itself as a species. The ancient Mother Goddess of agricultural cultures gradually lost power to the patriarchal god of more warlike societies but is today beginning to regain a position of importance in our mythic metaphors and, therefore, in the way we think and behave.”
Question about whether the female Devine or the male Devine is the more prevalent can come from some scholars that say the female Devine is greater and some scholars say that the male Devine is just as great or greater. Whatever the case may be, the power comes from the male Devine. If society behaves in the manner of the gods, then man can take his lead form the way the gods are. Some like the father and son some like kings and judges, and some like tricksters.
In this society males seem to be in charge of all things that are needed to this society. The father figure that takes care of and disciplines their children, and are the ruling force of this culture. Can the males of today really be associated with the gods of myth? Since there are so many different gods, it puts males in a difficult light. Since the gods are of many levels, it would be suspect to say that today’s male “Devine” is in the same category.
