The importance of myths

"The importance of Mythology throughout the years"
The importance of mythology has decreased as the years pass by. The popularity of myths has decreased because we now have access to things, such as scientific research, which provides us with what myths used to provide the ancient Greeks. For example, Ancient Greeks answered their questions with myths, but now a days our society doesn't need to answer questions with myths, because knowledge, technology, and scientific research can provide us more and more reliable answers to our questions.

Ancient Greece was a very religious society. Because myths are directly related to religion, they were very important. Even though religion is present in our society, it is not as important as it used to be. So again, myths are not as important as they used to be. For example, ancient China, needed myths to explain the creation, one of the most important questions to answer. In our modern society science can explain the creation of the universe, life and humans. That is how important myths were to the ancient societies. Now myths are often used as entertainment.

In conclusion, myths were, are, and always will be a very important aspect of our cultures because even though we do not used them to explain things we don't understand; myths still bring cultures, countries and even fellow country man together. Although myths will always be important, they will never be as important as they used to be.
