    Of course. But explaining the mystical experiences with all the Hebrew prophets is one of the more fascinating aspects of the religion. Together, they're quite different from the experience of Muhammad in the cave, in which the angel immediately resorted to strangling the prophet when he failed to respond, or Joan of Arc, who just heard voices.

    Paul's vision on the road to Damascus wasn't a solitary experience. It had various actors like Ananias and those who traveled with him. He was led to Ananias and Ananias was also directed by revelation to Paul. Then Paul had further revelatory experiences that led to his calling as an apostle. These are quite different than, say, literary encounters between Athena and Odysseus or Hermes and Priam which tended to be more self-serving in their outcome.

    Well I think you make the point that religious upbringing determine interpretation of these vision and Greek mythology is different from Jewish mythology. So that today many take more unbiased approach and look from a more natural based view point of such experience, as part of the human condition that is evolving all the time.
