The ancients saw the sun rise in the east, and disappear into the west only to magically reappear again on the eastern horizon the next morning. How did it get there? Surely it did not burrow through the earth! So many assumed it was reincarnated afresh each morning.

They assume because a belief is ancient it must be correct. Oddly, they have no such exaggerated respect for religious traditions other than their own.
