Anthropologist Paul Gosselin provides a nutshell view of his book Flight From the Absolute, volume II. Secular educated Westerners tell themselves that myth may have been important in ancient societies and was perhaps necessary in unenlightened times, but claim they've outgrown that now. But what if it were not true that myth is so easily gotten rid of? What if myth and belief were in fact unavoidable? What if moderns and postmoderns were in denial about their belief system? Now if in modernism we have in fact a religion that excludes the supernatural, what about myth? Might there be modern origins myths as well, but perhaps excluding gods or goddesses and propounded by high priests in lab-coats? When in education or media we are told that evolution is "scientific" what does this actually mean?
