People of one religion may also consider the beliefs of other religions as 
'mythology' - although the 
use of the term may be considered derogatory. Often it's simply a case of 
'innocent' arrogance 
though, rather than deliberate insult. Of course, athiests might consider *any* 
religious idea 
as 'mythology'. It's all a matter of relativity.

To get back to the subject though - anyone with dentures might want to use the 
denture adhesive before attempting a pronounciation. :-)
