As others (including myself) have pointed out to you, they would simply come up with their own mythology, most likely. We know this because, well,
with very, very, very few exceptions (the Piraha, again) every group of humans in the world has conjured up their own body of myths about pretty much
everything. We're still doing it today. The only difference is, these folks would be like our oldest ancestors, starting from a clean slate. The
direction htey go from there is completely unpredictable
However, there are probably a few givens.
They will see the universe as terracentric. The sky appears to float around and over the earth, and so this is what they're bound to believe. Galileo
was a HUGE revolutionary, as even the highly scientific Chinese, Maya, Inca, Egyptians, Greeks, and Muslim scholars before him believed the heavens
revolved around the earth.
If they have any sort of agriculture, they will have a basic concept of heredity. This is rather mandatory for agriculture even as basic as dog
breeding. How this expressed in their culture is anyone's guess.
They would very likely be animistic. The human eye is programmed to see human and animal features easily, and so will see them even where there are no
humans or animals. A cliff face which looks vaguely like a human face might become an actual being in these people's mythos, perhaps the great Cliff
Father or what have you.
They will also very likely have the sense that the mind and the body are separate, and thus the concept of "souls" to some degree. Very likely they
have a concept of an afterlife - but they may believe in reincarnation, that old souls get new bodies.
These are pretty basic, kind of the "root" of human cultures, due simply to the way humans "work". We have a certain set or witing and programming
from the day we're born.
We also have this funny habit where we always want to have an answer, even if we don't actually KNOW the answer. For instance, if you ask this guy,
"what are the stars?" he'll definitely have an answer. That answer will be whatever sounds good to him on such short notice. Anything from "holes
in the tent that makes night, letting the sunlight through" to "Fireflies that somehow got stuck up there in the big bluish-black thing"
