I don't see how mythology couldn't be the first religion, Maejston, given that religion, by it's very nature simply implies, worship of something.


myth - a traditional story accepted as history; serves to explain the world view of a people

story - a piece of fiction that narrates a chain of related events; "he writes stories for the magazines"


mythology - myths collectively; the body of stories associated with a culture or institution or person


Truth
1. Conformity to fact or actuality.
2. A statement proven to be or accepted as true.
3. Sincerity; integrity.
4. Fidelity to an original or standard.
5.
a. Reality; actuality.
b. often Truth That which is considered to be the supreme reality and to have the ultimate meaning and value of existence.


The FIRST religion was Truth,  not myth


The realization of religion never has been, and never will be, dependent on great learning or clever logic. It is spiritual insight, and that is just the reason why some of the world's greatest religious teachers, even the prophets, have sometimes possessed so little of the wisdom of the world. Religious faith is available alike to the learned and the unlearned.

Religion must ever be its own critic and judge; it can never be observed, much less understood, from the outside. Your only assurance of a personal God consists in your own insight as to your belief in, and experience with, things spiritual. To all of your fellows who have had a similar experience, no argument about the personality or reality of God is necessary, while to all other men who are not thus sure of God no possible argument could ever be truly convincing.


Truth is the basis of science and philosophy, presenting the intellectual foundation of religion.
