Reevy - Think they would make such references if it was a MYTH?
I believe it's quite possible. After all, look at all those that believe in the things in the Quran, like Muhammed going to heaven on a winged horse.
I had a bloke at work tell me that Hinduism was truth because of the 'evidence' which he didn't provide.
I just think we need to be cautious about what we are told from any source. That seems reasonable to me.
