Religion Comes From Ancient Astrology and Sun Worship
SHOOT: Makes perfect sense, as the sun and themes of light and depth are some of the oldest and most classical conceptual images in the human traditions. Early civilisations personified [anthropomorfied] elements [such as stars, movements of the sun etc] in nature. Allegory has since been confused with actuality. But since allegory was based on reality it can't be strictly said to be counterfeit, although a fundamental interpretation cannot be seen as an 'absolute truth'.
