I happened to catch part of a show on the History Channel proposing that some Ancient Greek myths were actually inspired by paleontologic finds. For instance, the http://homepage.mac.com/cparada/GML/BESTIARY.html [Broken] by Adrienne Mayor. You can read more about her theory on the site. Has anyone heard of this, read the book, have something to add, know where I can find more information, critiques, etc.?
