Vague[edit]

"... that purports to describe the origin of some feature of the natural or social world..." which are?

The illustration do not provide a good example. That Iceland became populated from Norway is not a myth, it's a historical fact. Exodus might provide a better example, where the myth described in the Bible claim origin from Egypt, while it's not supported or even contradicted by archeology. --Finn Bjørklid (talk) 13:17, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Finn above - the settling of Iceland occured in the 9th century AD - thousands of years later than the ancient times of unverifiable myth - there are many other more ancient examples that would be better suited to this topic - valkyree — Preceding unsigned comment added by Valkyree (talkcontribs) 00:06, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
