An African proverb says "tradition die hard" I will go for legends.

Traditions and data are both important. Traditions are a bond within families and cultures. I agree with others that there needs to be a happy medium between the two.

I agree that there is importance on both sides. Legend and data. They are both valuable and each has their own reasons for being important. I think there is a way that these two can complement each other and not have to just be one or the other.

I think both legends and data support each other, data could give us some direction, but legends complete that information, sometimes both of them go for different paths but at the end maybe they would be mixed in a wonderful missing history.

Data and legends should work to complement each other since the legends have reasons backing them some sound others not
I agree with this, as I feel that both legends and hard data have their advantages. After all, tradition is still based on hard facts at point of creation - it is a never-ending cycle.
