I had created a similar post long back. How we use 'mythology' for Hindu history and there were a lot of people saying, mythology = fact and there's nothing wrong in it.

The debate going on in India how Pushpak Viman, Kauravs, Pandavs are not a fact just a myth. To quote, the lord of the rings:
history became legend legend became myth.

So the name of this forum itself shows, we ourselves are saying, all of these are just a myth not history.

good topic Thumbs Up

i strongly believe our epics r not myths, its our history Smile  dont think before british era , indians called it mythology either...

west believes the earth itself is 5000 years old Tongue so based on this belief, they have labeled stories older than that as 'mythologies'

thank q. atlast someone here who understands. rest seem to be blind followers calling our history and religion a myth and very smartly defending it.
no other religion is called a mythology. dare to do that and we'll see some 'wonderful' answers. LOL 

it is a shame to see the name of this forum. simply name as 'story discussions', it is one and same thing Sleepy

pointing out the fact and yes, apologists will claim one is narrow minded or west phobic.
like you said, it is nodding one's head to what the west said. this will be the same people who will call Ganga as ' Ganges ' Angry 
try changing any of their holy names accordingly Wacko 

pity that the mods of this forum themselves think Hinduism is a mythological story, so nothing can be done.

In This Matter, I Think All The Magics And All Are Just Exaggerations Of The Truth, And If You Can Go Beneath That, Then Definitely There's Some Truth In It ! But Yes, Obviously Not Everything Mentioned In The Scriptures Is True And Neither Everything Is Mere Myth.

^^Actually I'm Active In Only A Few Of The Threads Here, And What I Said, What Just What Was Decided By The Previously Active Forum Members. But On This, I'd Like To Say, That Somehow I Feel, That All 'Mythologies' Of All Religions Are Somehow Interconnected. I Cannot Give Many, Or Any Precise Example, But I Still Feel That They Are. Maybe, The Same History Was Interpreted By Different People Of Different Religions, And The Characters May Have Different Names, Different Surroundings But The Base Is The Same. So As The Great People Have Said, That There's No Difference Between Any Religion, That's True In Any Case. But I Think The Different Names And Different Customs, Have Come From The Different Interpretations Only.
