Knowledge, Belief, Myth, and Religion

Directions: Answer the following question on knowledge, belief, myth, and religion in 3 to 5 sentences.

How are knowledge, belief, myth, and religion related to one another and how are they distinct from one another? Use an example from your life or popular culture to explain this relationship.
|Knowledge is the collective body of truth that one acquires though experience and education, while belief is information that one accepts as|
|truth without tangible substantiation.   Myths are tantamount to parables, with ‘moral’ to their story while religion is a societal           |
|organization based upon knowledge, beliefs, and often myths.   It frequently demands belief based on reasoning drawn from existing knowledge |
|or myths, often to the end of attempting to define or quantify the reason for existence.                                                     |


Directions: Choose two examples for each type of myth and identify the pieces of literature, such as a Shakespeare play, in which the examples are found.
