Mythology Questions

We have been studying mythology in our Language Arts Class.  Today a student asked another teacher a question.  She sent him to me.  The question was, "What would happen if there were no myths in the world.  Would things be the way they are now?"

I gave him my answer.  Our cultures, religions and many other things are built upon myths.  Myths make us question our beliefs in many ways.

Here is a second question:  "What would you say is your favorite myth and where does it come from?" (Greece, Persia, etc.)

So weigh in on this.  How would you answer these questions?  I told him I would put  out there and give him an answer next week.  Please leave a a comment.
