Nah. I meant, for me, there is truth in myths (psychological, emotional), even if the myth didn't happen. Men don't come back to life and breed (Osiris), or "ascend" (Jesus). Really. But what is the meaning of ruling a spiritual under-or-overworld after physical death?

Jesus told parables. Going deeper, perhaps his whole life is a parable someone made up after reading the obscure theological rantings of Paul of Tarsus. Christianity is rife with pseudo-history.
