Believers and Non-believers: both in error

In Karen Armstrong's article Believers in the lost Ark in the Guardian, I found the best explanation yet for the difference between logos and mythos. It is very frustrating in the modern world to be one of those who "believes in myths". To the modern mind, blinded by science, this is tantamount to believing in lies or crediting obvious falseness. So completely is the meaning between "truth" and "fact" conflated that it is impossible to talk of "two kinds of truth", one physical and one metaphysical. This article is an attempt to tease the meanings apart again, and explain to the modern mind why we need mythos.
