As I say, we live in a fact-based society where allegory is not used to convey truth.

Because an allegory isn't always a perfect represeentation of reality, and because it is not necesarily true. It can be wrongfully used by someone who has an agenda, like converting masses fo uneducated people, for example.

Also, why would you make up an entire story to make a point, instead of actually making it ?
