It is generally believed by literary, linguistic, and anthropological experts that there is some truth in mythologies, that they rose out of actual events, but that the stories convoluted or changed over time. As is true for human nature, as stories are passed, subsequent generations tend to embellish. Embellishment after embellishment on top of embellishment can make for a very grand tale.
