I'd be inclined to contextualise the story as 'made up by people of long ago' just like other fairy stories and say how some , in later generations got fooled into thinking it were true. This way I could rest assured, to some extent, and for the future benefit of the mind of the listener, that I wasn't simply playing host to theisms many levers of dissonance.
