    Yeah, I believe I the difference pretty well. The difference is that most things debated on constantly like religion are not widely considered truth, and that stuff like Australia exists is true, there is no possible way to deny that. Right?
    nah i'm not referring to the difference in how popular the belief is. (that doesn't matter)

    Slightly. I think they are manifestations of the same story. Like two different stories tell the same tale.

    The later one could just have copied the earlier one. Are you assuming that there must be some truth behind them?

    They could have, true, but keep in mind that there is a possibility that these people could have been years apart and not know anything about the other. Yes, I believe there is something behind this.

    As for the stories, yes I have proof. For an example, read the story of Abraham and the time he almost sacrficed his son, and the story of the golden ram from Greek mythology. Then compare.
    The reason these stories can be found in multiple religions is because religions copy. They aren't usually founded out of an actual faith but out of political interest. If it weren't for religion, Europe would have completely collapsed in the Middle Ages. If one religion has a good story, other religions at the time would take it and people would be none the wiser. Looking at ancient religions in a purely theological light is ignorant of the stront political power each of these religions had. There's a reason why heretics were killed before they could spread new beliefs in the ancient world

    I completely understand what you are saying, but there were also people who held on to there original beliefs even when they were Prosecuted for it. So at least some were completely faithful to their religions/beliefs.

    I just gound out that there is apparently a "new" religion out there "Heathenry". I think it describes me.
