There is no room for myth in the lives of those engaged in the pursuit of knowledge. Any good that happens in the world in the religious sphere and elsewhere is carried out by a compassion and love for each other not by word from the heavens above us. It is just to stupid to think about in any rational sense.
The roots of propaganda are from the medieval church. Indoctrination, superstition and fantasy replace logic and even members of the government believe and ask us to believe in these thing?
The worship of mythological beings, eased the transition from autonomy and common sense to the worship of leaders. We are asked to believe one thing on Sunday, that miracles happen, and another for during the week. Mix them up and we could find ourselves in a mental institution. But westerners are still asked to fight for “God” and country?
The modern day myth has unfortunately become a reality in a lot of peoples lives and has replaced the search for knowledge and more substantive roots to happiness.
