Mythos is not logos; and each explains the world in considerably different ways. In a rudimentary way, science explains how the world works; myth why it works. Myth is not always something relegated to speaking about religious issues or the beliefs of ancient cultures (though many have limited it to such); rather it is one of a number of filters to impart meaning onto human experience.

I really, really like this answer. Pretty much exactly explains how I view myth.

but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.”
