Correct, but it's no better to teach it as myth than it is to teach it as fact.
I disagree. Treating any religious text as fact is ridiculous in (non-religious) schools. Most Christians don't even believe in a completely literal translation of the bible and that everything in it is fact. Stories evolve, translations alter and memories fade. The bible should be treated as a book that is greatly significant to a large percentage of the population and important because of that. But not as a textbook that states facts.

Uhm, yeah... that's what I said... I said that teaching it as myth is no better.
