The Mighty SAMSON.
Strong men and mythical heroes have been a part of our culture for thousands of years.
Which hero of myth and legend came first? Samson? Hercules? Their stories are remarkably similar in that they both are imbued with God like strength and have performed feats and deeds that no ordinary mortal man could. Samson's power came from the length of his hair. Herky's came from his heritage and lineage being that his father was Father to the Gods of Olympus. Whenever someone refers to the Jedeo Christian God they refer to him as Father.
Both legends fought and killed a lion with their bare hands. I know that many legends are based on some story right out of some theological belief's whether they be Roman , Greek ,Catholic and so on.
When in fact many of these different religious theories are so basely similar it is tough to tell.
How many Apostles did Jesus have? How many labors did Hercules perform? How many miracles, feats of strength beyond human capability are there revolving around Samson , Hercules , Thor , Jesus , Conan , Tarzan, Superman , Luke Skywalker and on and on. One day be they fictitious or religious figures or comic book super people one day because of legends and myths all of them will be viewed as religion one day.
In fact...Star Wars does have it's own religion. You know what? I believe!
