Tim-agree. You said it better than me.

Just because someone finds a similar story back in time, that doesn't mean THAT is the story that explains why they are similar. The world at the time was just full of deities, demi gods, people born from a virgin, prophecies, miracles, whatever. This just means these are the kinds of things people used to tell stories and get people to "sign up" for a way of thinking or behaving.
