If you look at it all religious works are based on stories and legends that have been passed down by teachers. Every religion, from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and the Pagan faiths rely heavily on the "he said, she said". I don't want to have anyone to preach to me it will fall on deaf ears. Also I don't think that other people answering want to hear it either.
I am not attacking any religion just asking if you people believe that they are based on myths. All stories have been taught by men relating stories that "may" of happened. We have the legends of Hercules, The Great Spirit, and the bible. There is no absolute proof that any of these deities truely existed. To take the word of someone that may of existed is a major leap of faith. Keep in mind Christian "fundies" that the bible itself is not in its original true form and is full of metaphors.
