Sure, there are hundreds of such stories. All that proves is mankind can come up with pithy proverbs and such with no help needed from a god. You seem to want to continuously downgrade human intelligence by insisting pithy biblical sayings were inspired by a god.
Same argument about the pyramids, couldn't have been made by those primitive stupid men from 5000 years ago, therefore aliens exist who came down with nothing better to do than help men build a gigantic ego monument to one man. Sure, it could happen. NOT.
It was our own creativity that wrote all the verses in the Bible, the Quran, the Kabala, the Vedic texts, the words of Buddha and all the rest.
We already have near god like intelligence, the best of us at any rate, it belittles mankind to force people to think all that had to have come about by interacting with a god.
