What FSM and the mythology of religion have in common is that both are defined with symbols and therefore mean more than the superficial/literal. If you read a satire, you will not get the full meaning if you only think literally. You need to think outside the literal box to the hidden meaning that the author is trying to achieve. The reason it is done this way is because the literal characters are easy to remember, even for a child. This allows the tale to be passed down over the generations in compressed form, like a zip file. We all know Little Red Riding Hood since it is easy to remember and tell. The hidden meaning, within the literal, is harder to unravel and often changes within the context of each generation. The hidden meaning is more complex and does not pass down easily, like the literal, allowing the hidden meaning to be become renewed in the context of each generation. It is actually quite smart. Picture a ball that a child carries and plays with. The child gives the ball to a Zen Master and he twists and turns it until it unlocks the ball. It is like a transformer that then becomes a complex device. Playing with the ball is easy but knowing the secret to open the ball, does not pass as easy. Even if you watch it happen it is easy to forget. The problem is atheism preaches only the literal, and can't get past the child's ball version of an interpretation. In little red riding hood, since wolves can't talk, this can not be a transformer device, but only a ball. Therefore we will repress it since it is useless. The result is no puzzle and no hidden meaning.
