Parallels

Interestingly, I notice a parallel between Lots Wife and the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. In that tale, Orpheus's wife Eurydice had died, and his love for her was so strong that he entered the underworld to get her back. His music was so sweet Persephone granted him his desire. Eurydice would return to the land of the living with Orpheus, on one condition : that at no time during their long journey back to the surface would Orpheus look back upon her.
Unfortunately, he could not keep that promise, and gave in to the temptation, forever losing his beloved to death.

Could the message in the Bible be similar? That giving in to the temptation of curiosity can have dire consequences ? If so - it is no wonder that certain religions despise and denigrate scientific inquiry so much - Beware! Lest ye be turned into Salt!
