....and ' update and change and spread...' is what has been on going especially since the people of ancient Babylon migrated away from Babylon and spread their man-made religious concepts and ideas into a greater religious Babylon or Babylon the Great.I didn't say it wasn't useful. What I am saying is that at the end of the day one is talking about something that is concecptial and the invention of people. It is not like the idea created itself and manifests itself by itself. It is wholely possible that the people who invented them didn't think through the effects of what their creation would unleash (maybe it didn't matter to them) - nevertheless it is still thier creation and thus man-made. Their creation has no life on its own so if an idea/concepts evolves it is because someone human is updating/changing and then spreading it.
They spawned an endless variety of religious beliefs world wide, and that is often why we see so many similar or overlapping religious concepts earth wide.
Babylonian-based beliefs are now fractured into disunited world-wide parts including disunited Christendom ( so-called Christian ).
Thus, today we see a religious syncretism in today's world which continually evolves in the philosophies of men.
Teachings of mankind which rises and falls in popularity by the whims of men and Not by what Jesus taught as found in Scripture.
Beliefs so strongly entrenched that even when such cherished religious myths are exposed they insist on keeping their religious mirage alive.
