Despite the distortions and exploitations that characterize almost all religions, I say almost just in case there is one that has not suffered those afflictions- but I do not know of any, despite that, I do believe that there is some truth under it all and that the fundamental message is the truth.

That is in regard to the ancient religions where myth developed from enhancement of actual events. But along the way, sometime after Homer, but maybe even including Homer, humans learned to create fiction. So I think that the more modren myths are more likely to be fiction. It's just so easy to write something down nowadays, compared to when it had to be carved out of stone or memorized from generation to generation.
