Hindu is my absolute favorite. Their mythology delves into philosophical topics that some cultures didn't dare to conceive. They also have the most vivid details about the cosmos, in my opinion. I love reading Hindu mythology over any of the others... although Egyptian is also enjoyable.

Hello Venustrap. I also enjoy Hindu myths - the creation myth, the Ramayana and stories about Krishna. Have you read any of the Mahabarata or the Puranas? Hindu myths and culture have always fascinated me.

This is off the point, but has anyone seen "Once Upon a Time" on network TV. It's a bit Disney but the concept is wonderful; storybook characters cursed to live on earth not knowing who they really are, without happy endings. The interior sets use forest motif wallpaper and when the scenes cut to the actual fairy tale the characters are in the forest. I love it.

I do watch Once Upon A Time. It is an amzing show, I must say. I'd never really thought about it before, but now that you mention it, it is a little Disney-ish. And I'll have to watch for the wallpaper next time, too. (If it makes you feel better, I was never a detective.)
 
I adore Slavic mythology. I've met below some of major Slavic deities:

Perun - God of thunder and the sky
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/14-perun

Veles - associated with cattle, commerce, underworld and magic
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/15-veles

Svarog - sun and fire god
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/4-svarog

Stribog - god and spirit of the winds, sky and air
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/19-stribog

Lada - goddess of love, beauty, marriage and spring
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/18-lada

Mokosh - goddess of water, home, earth, and female occupations
http://epika.org/house-of-mythology/12-mokosh

Jarilo - deity of vegetation, fertility and spring, also associated with war and harvest

Your favorite type of mythology

What type of mythology do you most prefer?
I'm surprised there aren't more people interested in mythology stemming from ancient Mesopotamia. Is this classified as religion instead of mythology?

I don't bother to differentiate between the two terms, I mean, religion is just mythology not yet unfollowed, and mythology is just abandoned religion.

Most ancient and modern religions which involve belief in the supernatural, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Hinduism, have a mythological basis, as did the religious beliefs and practices of ancient Mesopotamia. Certain mythological elements have even crept into supposedly non-supernatural religions, such as Buddhism and Taoism. As a general rule, mythology and religion cannot be separated. Academically, the mythology of ancient Mesopotamia mostly seems to be studied in comparative religion courses, probably because of its impact on the development of Judaism and (therefore) other modern religions.

Pretty much, yes (to both questions) :D but I voted 'other' as in 'other options (all)'.

I like to understand people and I find the best way of doing this is to understand what they believe in and what could have therefore motivated them in history - and today too - so mythology/religion is my way to both study people, history, and religions both current and past.

i like Mythical creatures no matter the culture some people call it cryptozoology i have also heard it being call monsterology but so if i were to call it something it would be mythozoology i like mythical creatures from fairies (nature spirit) and sprites (elemental spirit) to Sleipnir (Lokis child and Odins horse) and Fenrir (also Lokis child)
