Not all that is preached is true. Some are fictions made by the imaginations of men and such are myth and legend. We have heard so many tales about them but are they actually true? No! They are just mare fiction just like a novel.

Refering to something which is not true but claimed to be literally true is myth ( such as urban myth and folklore ). Myth and legend are just mere tales. This theory believes that animals like dragons exist but have you actually see one? Remember " seeing is believing" you can't believe in such tales. They are only made possible in movies. "Here are many more popular myths which are less obviousbut still very much untrue. I don't see the necessity to 'bust' all the myths. Most are debunked by your common sense.
*. It takes seven years todigest chewing gum
*. The Great Wall of China is the only manmade structure visible from space
It's long, but it's not very wide.
*. Humans use only 10 percent of their brains.
Psychics love to use this myth and claim they use like 20 or 30%. Most people actually use all of their brain.
*. Adults don't grow new brain cells
*. On the southern hemisphere water drains the other way around
This myth is globally accepted, but still not true.
*. Animals can predict natural disasters
*. A penny dropped from the top of a tall building can kill someone
Not unless the penny weighs several pounds.
*. A dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's
Feel free to french kiss a random dog.
*. Men think about sex every seven seconds
Often, but not *that* often". It does not take a minute to think of a myth. Myths and legend are false tales.

Once you can imagine in creativity, then you can create a myth and make people to believe its real just like our movies. Believe it or not, myth and legend are false tales. Thanks.

I agree with you on this: A myth and/or legend can be false.

I disagree with you on this: ALL Myths and legends are DEFINITEY false tales.

Your resolution suggests you assume all are. Also I never would have bothered with this debate had you not challenged me to it! I suggest you realise your BOP before you do such things.

Reasons for voting decision: Agree with pro (for the most part), although some myths and legends maybe just be exaggerations of truths, etc. but con's right, BOP was not met IMHO. Could be an expanded debate though.
