This story only shows that the primitive mind, the religious mind, still makes material things important. Even fundamental Christians revere their Bible as the fundamental Muslims revere their Quran. The Quran and the Bible are just books written by primitive people FOR a primitive people. Until we can look at them for what they are we will be forever trapped in antiquity. Once we recognize the scriptures for what they are we can learn from them, we can see where ancient people still did not “get” it.
