A bit of a bonus episode this week! I read chapters 9 and 10 of Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Religions. Chapter 9 talks about Jonah as a sun god, along with figures from Hindu mythology, as well as Little Red Riding Hood being a sun goddess. Little Golden Hood is a variant on the story of Little Red Riding Hood that you might not be familiar with.
Chapter 10 deals with the practice of circumcision and how it wasn't unique to the Jews. Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex
