I’ve just always found it fascinating how some people actually feel like we shouldn’t classify stories from certain religions with supernatural elements as a mythology of that faith’s culture while stories of the same nature from “dead” religions can. If Greek Gods were still worshipped today, Heracles would be a buff messiah. It’s just so odd how some stories are too sacred to not be believed while some aren’t.

Religion is mythology. The problem is when the religion is too recent, it becomes religious/political commentary since many people use their current religion to form political opinions and laws. That's all.
