Interpretation is a feature in mythos**, not a bug. The imperfect transfer allows for adaptation, like imperfect gene transfer and imperfect gene expression does in evolutionary biology.

Mythos kept humanity going and societies together for longer than the alternative. That has to count for something, but more importantly, we don't have a mechanism outside the scientific method to evolve wisdom. And scientific inquiry isn't very good at that because it's geared at developing knowledge, which isn't the same thing. Sometimes wisdom is a byproduct but it's not the goal.

The greatest sin the west ever committed against itself was killing oral storytelling with the written word.


** many people confuse mythos with fiction. It's not necessarily. It's simply a way of transferring wisdom, knowledge, ideas, and history through storytelling. I just thought I'd make that clear lest any reader think I'm calling scripture categorically false here. That's not the case at all.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
