 Dispute Resolution Mythology
Mythology is the means by which individuals and society understand and organize their world and perpetuate their belief system about that world.
The individual's operative mythology is a fundamental component of his/her construction of reality - view of the world and how it operates - along with the effect of gender, race, age and developmental stage, and cultural, religious and ethnic heritage.
Whether the mythology has been transmitted in a grade school civics lesson or by Perry Mason or LA Law on television, the depth of the belief is unmistakable.

BIA (Bia), the personification of mighty force, is described as the daughter of the Titan Pallas and Styx, and as a sister of Zelos, Cratos, and Nice.
231.) Through his brother also Bias is said to have gained a third of the kingdom of Argos, Melampus having insisted upon it in his behalf, as part of the condition on which alone he would cure the daughters of Proetus and the other Argive women of their madness.
Like the rest of the Seven Sages, with the exception of Thales, the fame of Bias was derived, not from philosophy, as the word is usually understood, but from a certain practical wisdom, moral and politi­ cal, the fruit of experience.

Instead the religion of mythology became overlaid with a patina of highly sophisticated Vedantic philosophy; the two become so inseparable that Hinduism came to be defined through mythology.
Mythology and philosophy became so enmeshed in the common mind and daily practice that it became well nigh impossible to identify the individual strands.
A literal interpretation of mythology can be risky and Guru Nanak offered a surprisingly modern view of creation when he spoke of the void before creation, and of many galaxies and universes - without end and innumerable.

 Artemis Project: Misguided Mythology
It's a 16th century painting entitled Diane Chasseresse, or "Diana the Huntress." We don't know the name of the artist, but the painting is from the School of Fountainebleau, a colloborative effort by several of the 16th century Italian masters.
Throughout popular mythology, the Roman goddess Diana is often confused with the more noble, and much more ancient, Greek goddess Artemis.
The tricky part is sorting out the ancient stories from two millenia of writers, each with his own cultural bias and some with a definite desire to revise the history of religion.

The second approach of the degradation of females in mythology can be seen from the myths like in that of the Greek myth of Pandora, where the first woman was introduced into the world to release sin.
It is such that we see the great effect that mythology has had on the roles of the male and female in the household, the role of mythology in preserving aristocracy and in conceptualizing governments used till today, and lastly in the forming of social classes.

The story in the Mahabharata of Kunti ordering the five Pandavas to share Draupadi as their common wife is hailed and the Pandavas' immediate and thoughtless obedience of that order presents an extremely mindless and authoritarian moral system.
It should go beyond critiquing textbooks for their anti-Muslim bias to also interrogating their obsession with and glorification of Brahminical Hinduism, their total silence on Dalits and Adivasis and their historical oppression, their defence of social, including gender and economic, hierarchy and their uncritical defence of superstition and authority.

Greek mythology already has overt gender issues to be addressed such as Zeus being the dominant god over all the other gods and goddesses.
I had one girl in my sixth period class say that "the gods are sexist because there were only four girl gods, and all the rest were guys." During the chapters, students addressed the issue of the infidelity of the gods and goddesses.
Regretfully, one of my Greek mythology test questions was "Compare and contrast what life was like for man before and after Prometheus gave him fire." To my surprise, every student answered the question by using the noun "man" and the pronoun "he." After I graded the tests, I was upset with myself.

“The Chicago Tribune reports that conservatives ‘found grist for their complaints (about the liberal bias in the media) in a Pew Research Center survey last May concluding that journalists are significantly more liberal than the general public.
Given the liberal bias in the media, conservatives are depicted as rich, Bible-thumping, Nazi, warmongers trying to make the poor poorer and trying to take away civil rights.
It is part of liberal mythology that issues of import are inherently complicated.

 L. Brent Bozell III on Media on National Review Online
Media bias is more than just something "we need to keep our eye on." It is an endemic problem, and even now, when the media have actually come under some scrutiny, the problem is not being seriously addressed.
Although media bias has become the subject of debate in this country, the terms of that debate are far too narrow.
Conservatives have traditionally accepted liberal bias in the mainstream news media as a fact of life; it has been a given that the Left controls the news industry just as it holds sway over academia and the arts.

 Debates: Bozell v. Alterman on Media Bias on National Review Online
For decades conservatives have charged that a liberal bias dominated the press; at every turn the liberals in the press have denied it.
Most journalists continue to promote the mythology that bias is nonexistent in the news business, an amazing proposition given that it is impossible not to be biased.
After all these years suddenly these same journalists are finding that a conservative bias — yes, indeedy, a conservative bias dominates the press because the Fox News Channel and Rush Limbaugh control the world, or something.

Fortunately, there are historians who make a commendable effort to "step out" of their culture bias and recount the past from a more balanced perspective.
Some of that mythology comes from the "enlightenment" movement of their time.
However, I believe that the deeper, more spiritual aspects of their mythology have been removed or altered by history; especially any positive moral or spiritual associations with pagan people like Masons-Druids and for that matter also the Native Americans.

A bias is a prejudice in a general or specific sense, usually in the sense for having a predilection to one particular point of view or ideology.
A bias could, for example, lead one to accept or not-accept the truth of a claim, not because of the strength of the claim itself, but because it does or does not correspond to one's own preconceived ideas.
A systematic bias is a bias resulting from some system.
