Your imagination isn't very good. Mythology means a body or collection of sacred narratives, which certainly doesn't exclude current religions. A quick google of the following phrases yields:
"hindu mythology": 2,810,000 results
"christian mythology": 510,000 results
"islamic mythology": 191,000 results
"jewish mythology": 81,600 results
"shinto mythology": 44,800 results
All but the last of these, by the way, has its own Wikipedia article--and there's a "Japanese mythology" entry that combines Shinto and Buddhist elements.
My work here is done. Pedant-man, AWAAYYY!!!
