MINHAZ ALIjudsism is not the firs religion as they claim oftenly. first book was given to adam . Torah or bible is only 3500 years older. bible is given for people of middle east. zenda vesta was given for persians and vedas for indo aryans
Not to make a personal swipe, but what??????? That just came out of some misspelled left field.
Prior to these texts, the Sumerians and Babylonians had text, and religious (moral philosophical) beliefs written.
Before anyone knew, or thought to care about these texts, the Sumer had written the Enuma Elish, which covers creation, and the separation of good and evil. Ever since then the next round of civilization has incorporated the older civilizations myths/beliefs, renaming a character here and there, and calling it new and divine. Christians have been doing it for centuries, with many of the most popular saints just borrowed for pagan and eastern religions. This was done to help bring these people into the Christian flock. Now, worshippers of Roman Catholicism don't even know their deities are just borrowed from heathens, many birthed from the earlier Greek/Roman pantheon. What is Genesis, and much of the old testament (at least the books that were included and adopted, the Gnostic, amongst many other sects where a part of this myth creation) except the retelling of the Zoroastrian creation, and the Christian judgment day isn't even changed from the end of world belief of the Zoroaster. Zoroaster seems an amalgamation of the older religions at the time in the Persian area; again, even the genesis myth can be correlated to the Sumar, and the slaying Tiamat by Marduk. The time before creation of heaven, earth, sky, and sea when Tiamat reigned with the multiple caste of winged beast (sound like angles, and the different choirs of Catholic Dogma?). Love and be at peace. J
