Why do we have a tag named "mythology"? It implies the story isn't real, which is counter to the aims of Hinduism.

  • Mythology has another meaning which is "set of beliefs and stories associated with a religion." This can be used for stories or legends present in our scriptures. That is the way I use it. It doesn't mean a false story. – Sarvabhouma Oct 31 '17 at 2:09

    @NogShine Sure, but it has a negative connotation. – Ikshvaku Oct 31 '17 at 2:11
  • "which is counter to the aims of Hinduism..." - who get to decide what's the "aim" of Hinduism? You? Me? A bunch of devout Hindus? Scholars or Archaeologists who look for evidence of historicity of Ramayana and Mahabharata? Until that is settled, why use language claiming to represent all Hindus? – sv. Dec 1 '17 at 17:26
