1Sahil Badruddin = ""It is a shame that this word,
myth, which originally signified nothing more than stories of the supernatural, has come to be regarded as
synonymous with falsehood, when in fact myths are always true. By their very nature, myths inhere both
legitimacy and credibility. Whatever truths they convey have little to do with historical fact. To ask whether
Moses actually parted the Red Sea, or whether Jesus truly raised Lazarus from the dead, or whether the
word of God indeed poured through the lips of Muhammad, is to ask totally irrelevant questions. The only
question that matters with regard to a religion and its mythology is “What do these stories mean?”"-No god but God, Reza Aslan "
