Myths are stories, the products of fertile imagination, sometimes simple, often containing profound truths. They are not meant to be taken too literally. Details may sometimes appear childish, but most myths express a culture's most serious beliefs about human beings, eternity, and God.

The main idea of this passage is that myths:

1. are created primarily to entertain young children.
2. are purposely written for the reader.
3. provide the reader with a means of escape from reality.
4. illustrate the values that are considered important to a society.
