It's true they are. I suspect all of our current ideas will someday be just another mythology referencing a much more profound truth.
We have a creation myth that will change with scientific discovery, etc...
Current mythologies that are successful always merge well with the science of the time. Christianity worked for the people of that time. Now it is dead and a new mythology is needed. Here I paraphrase the master of myth Joseph Campbell.
As per the reflection principle any description of the infinite is only a reflection of the totality of infinity (God).
