Myth
Myth is a SACRED STORY, one that primarily concerns the gods and human relationships with them. It is further characterized by the manner in which it tells it's story. Myth speaks with SELF-PRESUMED AUTHORITY, it doesn't seek to persuade, it simply states "that's the way it is". Because with this kind of religious authority, myth can perform some very particular functions. It can offer EXPLANATIONS FOR COSMIC AND HUMAN REALITY and can offer MORAL LESSONS AND ESTABLISH NORMS FOR BEHAVIOR. Because of its authority and its ability to deal with timeless truth, the stories and lessons that myth remain UNIVERSALLY CONSTANT AND VALID.
