Writing Prompt: Create a Myth

Throughout human existence, humanity has come up with myths to explain creation, the afterlife, love, war, and many aspects of life that are not easily understood.  Often a pantheon of Gods, heroes, and monsters were responsible for many things that happen in our world.  

Today, we'd like to think we've become more sophisticated.  However, a quick look around reveals that we explain things that are difficult to understand through conspiracy theories and folk wisdom that isn't always very wise.  In retrospect, mythology seems like much more fun than conspiracy.
