This statement was made in an earlier post and someone got very upset...
This is dictionary.com's deffinition of Myth...
1. a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, esp. one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.
2. stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.
3. any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.
4. an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.
5. an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.
So, let me ask you this... How is the bible NOT a myth? Many see stories of Pandora or Morgain LeFay to be myth also, but to those that believe they are every bit as factual as the Bible.
So, what's your take? Is the bible myth? And does that mean it can't be true?

*just like witches, faries, gobblins, and elves. awww. too bad*
I doubt the witches on here would argue with you that faeries, goblins, and elves are myth. But that doesn't mean they can't believe in them, only that they can't prove their existence. Same goes for the bible.
