      With regard to mythology, I have no problem with new versions of the
      stories. The ancients themselves had multiple versions of these things
      (modern re-tellings such as Bullfinch are usually a synthesis of several
      sources or have popularized one version). Why can't we have as much fun
      with the stories as they did?
