Study religion, or don't. Many say similar things. Heard of the Sumerians? Came along long before (many thousands of years) the various writers of what later became the Christian bible. Many similar stories in their texts. "Divine births", 12 this, 12 that, great deluge (flood), mankind wiped out all but one righteous man and his immediate family chosen to save the animals, etc etc. Or, keep on the blinders. God exists, but God is not the personified, worship craving, dumbed down emotional entity mankind has created God to be to satisfy our own questions, desires, ego, etc. I'm not here to sway anyone from what they want to believe, but studying our human history to include religious history only benefits us all.
This thread really needs a split off from where all this discussion took off on another path.
