What evidence do you have that this is "mythology?"
Sadly the loyal athiest deosn't realize his beliefs are the actual mythology. In the end we shall see who's loyalty is rewarded.
"mythology"? The Story of God is ultimately based on the presumption that Genesis is true. I won't bother with the litearlness of the Adam and Eve fable, but the fact of the matter is that the Big Flood never happened. Now, when a physically demonstrable prediction of a theory is proved false, no logical reason exists to presume that other claims contained in that theory, especially those not subject to validation, are true.
Therefore, since the Noah tale is a lie, there's no reason to accept virgin births, healing miracles, withered fig trees, water freesurface walking, or any other unverifiable claim in that book. One is expected to take these things on "faith", but that's absurd when the checkable items are demonstrated to be false.
Hence, the book is nothing more than mythology. A collection of tales with hypothectical and tenous factual basis intended to explain natural events, indoctrinate the young, and otherwise channel thought and behavior, without regards to the objective reality of the tale.
