It took me awhile to piece together this about the sun myth in Silent Hill. A lot of people on the main forum I post on were confused on some of my points, I don't blame them. It's a working of vast amounts of mythos from various cultures into a form that can be convoluted to say the least.
The theory garnered attention and I think many fans will be interested in the evolution of the myth. It may provide answers to why the rituals by the Order tend to "fail" in the series so often. Of course this may not be the only reasons, only a fraction. (Other than things like demons and the Son of God being absent.)

I don't on the images, but since I am using it in an educational manner it is quite alright. Don't own the music either, but I think that's obvious. "A World of Madness" & "Promise" from the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack is used. The track titled "Sun" from SH3 is also used. I apologize for some of the audio issues and my bird wouldn't shut up.
