Who's going to win the Superbowl? The Oscar? The Nobel Prize? Why care? Ultimately All is vanity (I think somebody said that once).
But we're on a journey, no reason we can't have fun on the way.
In spite of this awareness of fate, or perhaps because of it, the picture of man's quslities which emerges from the myths is a noble one. The gods are heroic figures, men writ large, who led dangerous, individualistic lives, yet at the same tome were part of a closeky-knit family group, with a firm sense of values and certain intense loyalties. They would give up their lives rather than surrender these values, but they would fight as long as they could, since life was well worth while.
Men knew the gods whom they served could not give them freedom from danger and calimity, and they did not demand they should. We find in the myths no sense of bitterness at the harshness and unfairness of life, but rather a spirit of heroic resignation: humanity is born to trouble, but courage, adventure, and the wonders of life are matters of thankfulness, to be enjoyed while life is still granted to us.
The great gifts of the gods were readiness to face the world as it was, the luck that sustains men in tight places, and the opportunity to win that glory which alone can outlive death - H R Ellis Davidson Scandinavian Mythology
If we shut our eyes and say "there's no such thing as evolution" placemarker
Actually, no one said it, since according to evolutionists, people in the bible are just myths.
