Thank you, David puts it elegantly in a way that I couldn't. In
my mind, the Neolithic mythologies also have an astronomical
basis but they aren't as complex as the ones present in more
historical times. I never said that there wasn't an astronomical
interpretation of these myths, quite the opposite.
