I consider the entire New Testament to be myth, and believe Jesus to be
a melding of the legends of several teachers of the time one of whom may
have actually been called "Jesus". When I state that I consider
religions like Wicca to be equally valid to religions like Christianity,
I am not complimenting Wicca...
In any case, however, even if the stories are false does not mean that
they don't convey lessons.
