The Light of the world, the Sun, which was worshipped for thousands of years. Then a man came along & folks changed SUN to SON, and he became the light. Those who came after him ruled with an iron fist, killing & maiming all those who stood in their way to power & wealth. And the same goes on today, though not as much killing & maiming these days, but the need for power over, is still there. All three monotheistic belief systems suffer the same fate. Shame that they can't all live together, as their God would want them to. For when all is said & done, He's the same God but with different names.
