Mythology is used here to refer to the entire body of a cultural group's traditional explanations, or sacred stories, that comprise and reflect its world view.  Myths have been compared to dreams in that they are presumed not to be intentional products and also, that they are inextricably associated with, and characteristic of, one particular individual (in the case of a myth, a culture.) 

Myth [or a mythology] forms the basis for religion.  Conversely, a religion may create a mythology or alter an existent one.
