I have seen many a religious documentary (I try to watch at least one a week) and one I watched a few weeks ago talked about how they have actually found chariot wheels (or the remains of) and other proof that the Egyptians did chase after Moses and the Isrielites as is stated in the Bible. Which many people use as physical proof of the legitamicy of the Bible itself.
However, there is also physical proof of myths like Troy and even Arthur... So this is what people tend to point to to legitamize Pagan myths...
So, here is my question(s)...
1.) To Christians how does the "proof" of Christian mythology affect your beliefs and how do you react to the "proof" supporting other faiths?
2.)Non-Christians, same questions, how does the "proof" of Pagan mythology affect your beliefs and how do you react to the "proof" supporting Christian faiths?
**Disclaimer** Before everyone gets upset over the use of the word "myth" please understand it's not meant to cause issues. It is a term that is used to describe any unproven religious tail. Meaning what is myth to you is not myth to someone else. So to be fair everyone is being referred to that way. Please do not allow it to offend. It's being used in a technical form here not a critical one...

rhanford ~ Troy is true. But for hundreds of years it was written of as pagan myth because there was no proof. Now that we have found the ruins of Troy it's seen as true. But there is still little or no physical proof of the how and when or the religious support behind it (the Gods) just like the Exodus. There is physical proof that it happened but no proof of the God behind it...
As for Arthur, there is again, much proof that some of the myths are factual. In fact they did find proof of the existance of King Arthur as well as the fact that many of the places surrounding the myths did and do still exist. (also see this: http://www.damninteresting.com/king-arthurs-grave)
