About some of those comparative models that people use…

When comparing two distinct phenomena, the temptation is always toward reduction—to count things in each to see which is greater or to list things for quick and easy comparison. Results are typically superficial. More substantive and useful comparisons require some sort of qualitative approach.—M. Patrick Graham in Divine Doppelgängers: YHWH’s Ancient Look-Alikes, p. 129
