Will check it out, thanks! With all of the repeated themes throughout known history, it's funny that people usually use the repeated nature of the
accounts/stories/mythology as their "proof against" religions (usually Christianity, specifically.) I've always seen this more as an affirmation of
the underlying truth(s) of the stories.
Either they're happening repeatedly, on some type of cycle, for whatever reason, or the stories are being retold throughout the ages, and the history
dates waaaaaay back to the original 'happenings.' In other ways, I feel there is occult (meaning hidden, some people wrongly think 'occult' means
evil or satanic or whatever) knowledge embedded within religious texts/accounts. By considering and studying all, or multiple versions, sometimes the
core meaning can be more easily discerned than merely considering one.
In many ways, I feel as though each different iteration of the same (more or less) story is just a different "skin" overlaid on the real "meat and
bones" of what is being told.
