Mythical man's (i.e. the Orthodox) need for Tanakh to be historically true and the secular position that opposes him both miss the point.
History alone (and here the Orthodox and their secular opponents both err in their dedication to 'history') is not enough. Man does not have to live by history (rational or mythical) alone, but can live with a [holy] drop of the mythical over a solid foundation of reason and rationality.
