Wang is correct. The first 'recorded' deities that we know of were Sumerian. And all the knowledge that supposedly just happened over night (time
recognition, zodiac [which would require at least 26,000 years to stduy], flight, metalurgy, sewage systems, high rises, base 60 math (Sumerian. Ours
is a puny base 10), etc., seem to point out some 'divine intervention', now hypothosized to be Alien encounters. Some good authors I think you would
enjoy would be Erik Von Daniken, Zecharia Sitchin, Graham Hancock, Christopher Dunn, Andrew Collins, and Joseph Campbell (for a traditional view on
how almost all religions stem from one).
Keep up the thought work and deny ignorance. Also, on your first question about ancient religions. I would say I'm a Horus man. Because he's the
equivalent to Thor (Odin's son) in Norse Mythology.
/Nordic Mythology is cool, but is still a copy of Sumerian, to fit the Nordics climate and way of life.
edit: Also, the Hindu religion is very close to Sumerian. But they're are two major factors. Original Indian, and Aryan Indian. It is impossible to
seperate the two, so we'll never know who was first (Sumerian or Indian). I think thre are also under water structures in Japan, India, and Central
America that almost date to the Pyramids, around 8000 B.C.E. (about the time Jericho got started). Supposedly they were there from before the flood
(before 10,500 B.C.E.) while the pyramids were after, but still in the age of Leo.
