* ''WaitingForGodot'' is either an allegory of the Cold War, a collection of Jungian archetypes or an examination of human existence and the role of God, depending on who you ask. Godot himself is often thought as being God, largely because of his name and the fact that both him and God are described within the play as having a white beard. Samuel Beckett himself was very insistent about the fact that Godot was not God and if he meant Godot to be God he would have called him God.

* ''[[ViewAskewniverse Dogma]]'': This claim is put forth by Loki, the exiled Angel of Death, in his attempt to convince a nun that God does not exist. He wins and tells her to buy herself a nice dress and go find a man...or woman.

** The game is utterly rife with symbolism, particularly symbols and language that make it clear that certain factions are meant to stand in for things we have in the real world, such as Christianity, science and, more obviously, nature worship. While these forces all have very clear-cut domains, in theory, the waters are so muddied that it is almost impossible to tell what the overall allegory is. The most you can really tell is that that the developers seemed to think that the early Christians persecuted the Pagans rather than vise-versa and that the world of Thief is apparently run by fanatics of various kinds who both create and solve all its problems.

Added DiffLines:

* British English Literature courses that are GCSE level and above rely on the analysis of a wide variety of texts to make up a significant portion of the course, whether that analysis is sensible or not. The texts can include plays, novels, magazine, articles and poetry - even if they clearly had no thought put in to them.

** Gilligan is the Devil, and the island is Hell, with no escape possible. That's why he [[JustEatGilligan continuously sabotages escape attempts]]. ''Except he really doesn't. Out of 37 episodes where they might really have escaped, it's only his fault 17 times.''

Memories of that overzealous English teacher, who forced you to accept that every character, every scene and every action had a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory deep inner meaning]]'' have led to widespread fear on the part of readers and viewers everywhere that every tale secretly contains some other story being told in {{subtext}}. The end result of this is a state of mind that interprets every plot as an allegory for the rebuilding of one's soul, every setting as a manifestation of purgatory, and every protagonist as a stand-in for the Christ: [[TitleDrop Everyone Is Jesus In Purgatory]]!

* Santiago of ''Literature/TheOldManAndTheSea'' is UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}, though Hemingway stated that the book was just about fishing and old age, nothing else.
** People like to point out that when the eponymous character is carrying his mast and sail back to his home, he falls five times, just like when Jesus when he was carrying the Cross. [[CriticalResearchFailure Too bad the Stations of the Cross state that Jesus fell three times, not five]].

* ''ThePath'' can be (and was intended to be) interpreted in many ways. Is it a cautionary tale about the dangers of temptation in its many forms? Is it a metaphor for life and growing up? Are the girls the memories of the grandmother at different stages in her life?
