Contribution to Volkskrant (Dutch newspaper) article on evolution of myths

Ronald Veldhuizen wrote an article in De Volkskrant (Dutch newspaper) Gaat een steenoud sterrenbeeldverhaal helemaal terug naar de prehistorie?, about a theory by Julien d’Huy on the reconstruction of an ancestral tree of myths. I gave a short comment on the theory in the article, based on my experiences with reconstructing phylogenetic trees of languages. Jamie Tehrani also gave his vision and compared the theory to his own models.
