I read this in "Kafka on the shore":
Greek gods are more mythological than religious figures. By that I mean they have the same character flaws humans do. They fly off the handle, get horny, jealous, forgetful. You name it."
In the part that I have highlighted, the character says that by mythological, he means "having character flaws" but that doesn't correspond to the definition of the word(of or relating to mythology or myths) I find in Merriam webster dictionary. So what am I missing? And one other thing are not "Greek gods" "religious figures"? as the narrator seem to imply the opposite.
