    The Bible contains a lot of mythology, along with laws, advice, poetry and prophesy all collected over centuries. Consider though that America has its own mythology, some of which made it into history books: Mayflower, Pilgrims and Indians, George Washington and cherry trees, Christopher Columbus, Johnny Appleseed. These are kind of outdated, because it's easier to differentiate old myth from current mythology. Some of it has truth in it, what makes it myth isn't its factuality, but how it guides the cultural consciousness.

    Well, interviews with Abraham were pretty conclusive that he really heard the voice of God, and when Katie Couric tried to trip him up he kept the story completely straight. His neighbor said he was hitting the wine pretty hard when he wrote it all down, but the neighbor also was an attention whore and nobody really believes him.

    real? no. I think just a lot of allegories, legends and myths from Bronze Age and Neolithic peoples, which may be loosely based on real events. Like how the Great Flood may have happened in some sense, but not an actual Noah or Ark.

    I'm not religious, but the Bible is a well-written work. for literary talent alone, i'll give the Apostles and the people who wrote the Old Testament 10/10.
