The myth of myths

There is a myth that those of us who believe in God do so in order to explain what we can’t understand.

There is no doubt that this has always been a superficial use of some myths. Look more closely, though, and it is easy to see that the purpose of a myth is more to teach a lesson than to explain anything. Many myths lack a “explain the unexplained” part entirely.
