"After the rise of philosophy, history, prose and rationalism in the late 5th century BC, the fate of myth became uncertain, and mythological genealogies gave place to a conception of history which tried to exclude the supernatural (such as the Thucydidean history). While poets and dramatists were reworking the myths, Greek historians and philosophers were beginning to criticize them."
So "philosopy, history, prose, and RATIONALISM" seem to be the bullets that put Greek Mythology to rest. Hmmm...sound familiar?
Really...Wikipedia said that? Who would have thought that WIKIPEDIA would have said something like that. What did the National Enquirer have to say about it!
