Old mythologies are always interesting, and in my opinion they belong to history lessons amongst other things which would educate people of their past (or at least past of the country they live in). They are also important pieces of information when studying/researching cultural history in general.

However, my point originally was that the culture whatever it is now is only a moment in its timeline and it always comes from somewhere and it is constantly going to somewhere. For example Perkele origins from baltics and one could make a connection between Ukko and Ygg (which is another name of Odin). One can always point at a certain point in time, but it is just a matter of opinion which one is considered more important than others.
