or myth making.
I think Odera Oruka is right when he writes
religion generally is an offshoot of mythology. Even though some forms of religion shift to philosophy or sociology in order to avoid mythology, but much of the religious appeal to believers remains mythological
He writes, regarding Christianity
in Christianity, the myth has been the recitation of the ‘son of man’ (who is god, too) who is born without biological conception and who later is killed and buried and on the third day rose again and flew to heaven to sit on the side of his father.
And yours truly nods in agreement.
