Campbell says in the video that things have changed in the last 50 years. Considering this video is about 50 years old, weâ€™â€™ve gone well beyond that. It makes no more sense today holding onto biblical myths than in holding onto believing in Zeus.
What would our children gain from this? Well, critical thinking skills for one. Being able to view reality for another. Not having to live with the threat of eternal punishment for not following contradictory instructions and examples, and using instead ethics and our (in most people) internal sense of fairness and community.
We donâ€™t have the need for myths anymore.
