Re: is it all interpretation/s?
You didn't address the question:

...you can't show that the supernatural events described [are] anything more than myth.
You provided nice provenance for the myths, but haven't shown they are anything more than old tribal myths.

Re: whats your "evidence" for that?
The question is one of reliability. the ability to trace a now existing document to its source, with nearly pinpoint accuracy is more than good evidence.
Tracing something back is not necessarily a test of anything but accurate copying.
We can trace the writings of Shakespeare back with pinpoint accuracy, but that doesn't make it something other than fiction...
