It's interesting how most "old" religions usually had a god that symbolized a particular aspect of nature. Some religions prized certain gods and aspects above others. Egyptians usually placed the Sun God Ra at the center of the pantheon, but the Ainu religion centered around their Sea God and "wise man".
I think the biggest innovation of Abrahamic religions is that they placed their respective versions of God above Nature, or even the creator of Nature. Maybe it's just me, but the idea of God as separate from Nature makes seems like a mistake to me. It makes God conveniently unexplainable and everything about God can be hidden in a shroud of mystery.
I reader. Be still my heart.
Yes. Christians took their god to such an evil level that no one could fathom anyone insane enough to even take a name, --- if he was worse than the genocidal Yahweh.
Hence Gnostics calling that garbage god a demiurge in our myths.
You likely know that our myth was written specifically to put against the Christian version to enhance the dialog and teaching.
More like Christianity 2.0; consisting of Chrestianty and Jewish core beliefs of the supremacy of man over god and esotericism.
That was great for all, but when supernatural belief reared it's vile head, ---,Christianity used inquisitions, ---instead of logic, reason, and good morals, --- to sell their religion.
Some of the Jesus archetypes and Christianities are not bad, but the (Constantines) and current right wings of all the Abrahamic cults are less than ideal.
Atheists are showing better morals and should be more militant.
The bright and better Atheism needs to outshine the dim of moral whit, God believers.
