Where’s a Greek god when you need one?
A people’s belief about the world’s beginnings is usually called a creation myth, mythology, story, or tale by other peoples. It should be noted, however, that to the people involved, these are not myths or stories. They are real, not in a linear, literal, scientific sense, but nevertheless real, and part of the authentic plurality of humankind’s truths. Thus, a more useful and respectful way to describe these “myths” is to call them “sacred narratives,” especially when the people to whom they are sacred are still living and revering these stories. –Mythinglinks: http://www.mythinglinks.org
