I also find the biblical Abraham story interesting. God told Abraham to kill his son — but then it turned out he didn’t really want Abraham to do it. Does that make God a liar – or someone who tells us one thing he doesn’t really want us to do in order to manipulate us into doing/being someone else? And why would he want us to be someone else if he made us this way? Methinks our myths are ways of trying to manipulate God and make him/her in our own image.
