No, it isn't.

Unless, by "allegory" you mean "something which is taken literally untill science proves it false, at which point religious nutbars conveniently call it an 'allegory' to avoid acknowledging the sheer absurdity their belief."

What do you think are some of the biggest contradictions in the story of Little Red Riding Hood, or The Three Bears?

I challenge you to prove that all the biblical stories have always been interpreted literally.

One example: Heliocentrism.

See: The centuries long suppression of Galileo's work.

You'd think that if the Christian God existed, what with him being omnipotent and all, he would have been nice enough to index which parts of the bible were meant to be taken literally and which parts are fantasy, thus avoiding thousands of years of controversy and death.
