I think Abraham Lincoln would be thought of as a god (in fact in a lot of modern pop culture and urban culture is already giving him a god like status.) Nelson Medulla would probably be thought of as a god, Napoleon, might be thought of as a god of war. People like Mao Zedong and Starling, might fall into the reign of demons, in mythology. The cold war, might become the story of a great battle between heaven and hell and how the gods, finally sealed the demons away.

How funny would it be, if stories such as star wars, fall into actual mythology.
I think it already does, in a sense. Lucas built his story around Campbell's Monomyth hero's journey and other classic storytelling elements that make Star Wars timeless.
Image we take a time machine to 5000 years later and saw a live play base on an ancient American legion and we right away, know that is star wars. Ha ha, :)
Christ is not the same as Luke Skywalker or characters from Star Trek.
Our modern epics like Star Wars and Star Trek are our modern myths, they part of how we make sense of and navigate our world as well as how we entertain ourselves and teach our children.
Also, I need to point out, many archeological evidence prove, Jesus, was originally a play, written over 2000 years ago. It was inspire by then politics and Egyptian mythology, but Jesus itself, was a play. So, Jesus is kind of like star wars
I read something this morning...NASA fully aware of aliens here. Full disclosure coming.
"Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done" Mark 13:30 Jesus was an apocalyptic prophet who believed the end would take place in the lifetime of his followers. Jesus, proven wrong since 30 AD &count
????? Jesus proven wrong? He was raised from the dead! He foretold the destruction of the temple! He did not mean "that" very generation. He never said he was coming back immediately. He doesn't know! Only God knows! You will be proven wrong!
