Tales, stories - based on?

Greetings fellow readers.

This week belongs to topic - Tales or fairytales maybe stories if you will.
If somebody speak up the word - tales, what is your first imagination?
For me it's something animated, cartoon maybe merged with some myth, fantasy story - but generally it's a film for kids or whole family these day.

You can go and watch some new "fairytale/tale" in a cinema or at home on dvd.
But the stories and things around it has been created by somebody who used maybe his imagination his mind or he maybe based the story on true and in some special way he transformed it into a watchable version or in a version what he like.

What I'am trying to say is that first stories first fairy tales is maybe 20 000 years old. And basically it's maybe older then we think because first tales was originally not on a paper or papyrus but they were hand down orally.

I think you've already heard that in a historical books are lot's of same things or they have lots of things in common. So we can easily deduce that something in that stories has to be TRUE?!

Theoretically speaking, there is 100% chance that the first books was based on truth.
Nowadays, it's maybe harder to say something what I've mentioned before, because we have so so many books and stories, and they are blending together so hard, that is really hard to say what or where is the truth. And I'm not tallking about more developed imaginations, creativity and affect of 21st century.

So what's your opinion? Do you think that first stories and tales was based on truth?
Why do you thing that todays tales are not based on truth?

Leave comment, I'm looking forward to your opinions.

Well, I think, that all the stories are based on truth, no matter how much fantasy they are. Neil Gaiman, the greit fantasy author, says that story is somethink like a mirror, i which we can see our world... in same cases the picture is deformed, but it is still the reality in some way... :-)
