Sunday, May 18, 2014: “Myth in Human History”

Host: Ray Cross

This week’s program will be another from the Great Courses company.

The presenter is Professor Grant L. Voth. He is professor Emeritus in English and Interdisciplinary Studies at Monterrey Peninsula College and an expert in world literature.

The title of the our lecture this Sunday is: “Mesopotamian and Hebrew Flood Myths”.

In this program, Dr. Voth compares Very early Flood myths with the stories in Genesis. These are stories that those of us from Christian backgrounds have heard all our lives and perhaps even taken as truth.

Myths explain who we are and why the world is the way it is; all before the advent of modern science. Do we modern people still have our myths? Some would say the Big Bang Theory is our Creation Myth. What do you think?

The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship meets every Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM at the Twin Falls Senior Center, 530 Shoshone Street West in Twin Falls.

Newcomers are always welcome. Child care is available. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the front of the building.

For information, please contact Ken Whiting at 734-9161.
