Why do we study myths? What part does mythology play in society?

These are important questions. Part of our human nature is to attempt to explain things we cannot understand. We want to fill the gaps in knowledge that can't be rationally answered. Because we can't use logic to explain some situations, the alternative becomes the development of a mythological explanation, using supernatural beings, powers, or events to provide the explanation that is otherwise unavailable. We all desire order in our lives - myths help provide it in situations where no other explanation is apparent.
