Quote of the Day: Joseph Campbell


“Today we know–and know right well–that there was never anything of the kind: no Garden of Eden anywhere on this earth, no time when the serpent could talk, no prehistoric “Fall,” no exclusion from the garden, no universal Flood, no Noah’s Ark. The entire history on which our leading Occidental religions have been founded is an anthology of fictions.” –Joseph Campbell (Myths to Live By)
