There are many different philosophies towards life All these philosophies are based on the opposition of mythos and logos The factor that changes most philosophies is the correct definition of the two terms Philosophers have been trying to explain the difference between mythos and logos for centuries The only thing that is agreed upon by all philosophers is that logos can be explained and mythos cannot This is the most generic difference between the two An example of mythos is the bible When read one cannot experiment with what is taught in the bible One must take what the book has to offer and have faith in it This is the problem that faces the world Theologians will argue till the end of time that god created the earth and everything on it and scientist will oppose them by saying it all happened spontaneously and that evolution has a part This battle can never be won because the theologians cannot be proven nor disproven This battle did not start anytime recently it was being fought during the rein of the Athenians as well as in the modern day During the Athenians rein there was a philosopher named Socrates Socrates was a teacher that felt the goal of philosophy was to replace religion as the basis for knowing what right and wrong actions are with reason He was a man that loved to learn his goal in life was to search for wisdom To Socrates wisdom is a clear view of what human life ought to aspire to but as a philosopher he is not wise because he only knows that he does not know he calls this human wisdom His idea of logos was to understand the basis of everything without religion being involved He wanted concrete proof that which could be tested and possibly disproved Mythos to Socrates is the same as to the rest of us it is just improvable facts
