The term mythology can refer to either the study of myths, or to a body of myths. For example, comparative mythology is the study of connections between myths from different cultures, whereas Greek mythology is the body of myths from ancient Greece. The term "myth" is often used colloquially to refer to a false story, but academic use of the term generally does not pass judgment on truth or falsity. In the study of folklore, a myth is a sacred narrative explaining how the world and humankind came to be in their present form. Many scholars in other fields use the term "myth" in somewhat different ways. In a very broad sense, the word can refer to any traditional story.

i guess u didnt read it properly or only took in the bits u wanted to, as i have put in the very first post myths r tradittional stories, and they cover many things. the bible and book of Allah r also traditional stories and also change at times, australian dreamtime for the aboriginals r true stories for them that have bn passed on thru generations yet there isnt a book for them to follow, just as egyptian/kemetic have hieroglyphics to tell there stories so do the aboriginals. Just because they aint written in writting as we know today doesnt make them any less true to objects like the bible and other religious books

Quote: Spoon: Origins of Myth:

Euhemerism

(One theory claims that myths are distorted accounts of real historical events.) According to this theory, storytellers repeatedly elaborated upon historical accounts until the figures in those accounts gained the status of gods. For example, one might argue that the myth of the wind-god Aeolus evolved from a historical account of a king who taught his people to use sails and interpret the winds. Herodotus (5th century BC) and Prodicus made claims of this kind. This theory is named "euhemerism" after the mythologist Euhemerus (c.320 BC), who suggested that the Greek gods developed from legends about human beings
