  • Yes, in the deepest, most profound sense of the word. Mythology does not, like some people think, mean a myth as in untrue. Mythology stems from ancient beliefs based on spirutal connections and passed down for generations. The study of mythology and the meanings behind what is known are facinating.
  • I think it depends on what specific religion you are referring to. Such a judgment can only be made by an understanding of what the religion teaches. Good question. +5
  • No, it's not. I believe in The Christian religion and I dont see it as mythology. I dont even consider other religions as mythology because their followers believe sincerely in those religions. I only accept the Christian religion but I will never denounce another persons religion. Well almost. I will denounce Scientology lol.
  • Absolutely. Since the existence of god is unprovable how could it be anything else? All religion is just mythology.
  • You tryin to give mythology a bad name too? LOL
  • It's more like a collection of modified mythology...a lot of stuff from Christianity and Judaism comes form older religions. I think Lucifer was originally a deity of agriculture, or nature or something like that...who belonged to the Romans. But the Romans ganked all their shit from the Greek...lulz can't nobody come up with their own original stuff?
  • Religion has nothing to do with mythology, or the practice of it. Religion stems about 3,000 BC when Adam and Eve first started to start the evolution of man. Mythology was started by the Greek's and Roman's before God ever came into play. They had their own God's and idol worshippers. Which were all ficticious but they capitalized on it and created statues to symbolize their so called immortals. Many of them took on the elements and others took on human traits. The Roman's had Ceasar as their leader, as well as the Greek's had their leader. Jesus eventually confronted Ceasar later on in life and the Roman's refused to bow down to Jesus. Read your Bible!
  • WORSE! Myth were used in ancient times attempting to explain some natural or social phenomenon. Typically involving supernatural beings or events--fictitious or imaginary person or things. An exaggerated or idealized conception of a person or thing; often time to convey meaningful and important messages which many didn't know how to convey in any other way. But then RELIGION took myths and allegories, whose significance was once unfolded to the initiates in the ancient mysteries, and adopted and re-issued them as real truths "divinely vauchsafed" to mankind for the first and only time when found in the Hebrew writings. So a great deal of what has been imposed upon us as the God's direct "true" and "sole revelation", to which many people have sincerely, honestly and genuinely devoted their lives--and even in the past cut each other's throats for--is a mass of inverted myths. The Church, in forging and consolidating its power, found them very useful.
