I have never had a sure answer to this question, but I choose to believe there is a Divine force in the universe, a source of hope, help and strength.  I am certain that there is good and evil in the world, and that there is much we cannot see or understand about life here on earth.  Carl Jung, the great philosopher, said something to the effect that each of us must make our own relationship with God, and that through our personal experiences we will come to know Him. In my experience,  authentic faith, versus "superficial" religious observance ( the imitation of faith without the depth of meaning) is a powerful, life-changing process. ( I do NOT imply that observing a religion is superficial.)  I have been through many stages in my spiritual journey- from rigidly/blindly faithful, to agnostic, to exploring a variety of spiritual paths, to choosing a family faith and finding my way to greater spiritual growth.  No doubt there will always be continued learning- I am continually aware of how little I know!  Why do you ask?  Wishing you the best.

 Mythology is mythology, whether recent or ancient, and quite different from fairy tales.

I agree with what she said.
