Quite agree - creation stories are often very rich in symbolism that says a lot more about the cultures and people for whom these were aimed at, and their priorities from that cultural stand point. Some of the Egyptian creation myths, for example, can sound quite absurd - but once you understand the cultural meanings behind the symbols, you can grasp something of the logic behind them. For example, among the Ancient Egyptians, the unique fertility of the Nile combined with the perceived movement of the sun from east to west set precedents in symbolism relating to meanings of space and time according to this. It's fascinating once you realise east = birth, yesterday, before, beginning; west = death, tomorrow, soon, ending, etc. Ah, yes, quite agree: http://www.interfaith.org/forum/infinity-and-g-d-11076.html#post188055 The flythroughs seem to be showing something fundamentally profound, that unfortunately I'm too ape-like to be able to comprehend and describe.
