Religion, Myth and/or Superstition?

What is the difference between Religion, myth and superstition. Yes, it is a given that they will intersect at some point, but at WHAT point does it become necessary to 'inform' one form with another and why?

I have had it suggested that what separates out 'Religion' is the presense of a/some deity/deities.

But let me ask you something. Do you think that Homer/s intended to write a 'religion' that would last for thousands of years, or a cracking good yarn?

And why aren't some some myths turned into 'Religions'?
