From Susan Stephens:

Re: Is The Odyssey astronomically accurate? (June 23): Somebody doubts that information could travel from Babylon to Greece in several hundred years? Oh, come on. Incorporating this information into “historical novels” was probably the next fad to hit Greece, once they heard it.

We were all taught that mythology and folk tales and even rumors all had a basis in some true fact, however obscure or vague it seemed on the surface. That “theory” seems to have proved itself many times over the past 50 years.
