This page will focus on the Western and the Middle Easten religions. Judaism, Christainity and Islam are 3 religions that have dominated the thought systems, including, morality, laws, social standards, cultures, education, government etc, for most of known history since the collaspe of the ancient Roman civilisation. These 3 religions and the people and regions that they dominate have a polarised good, evil and a linear beginning and end mentality of time, unlike the religions in India, China, Japan, the Mayan civilisation and other anient civilisations etc, which have the viewpoint that polarities, such as good and evil are just illusions and have a non linear cyclical view of time.

The European civilisations in the West have expanded under the banner of Christianity and the Middle Eastern civilisations in the Arab world have expanded under the banner of Islam. Christianity and Islam have been very domineering compared to any other religions that have existed. This seems to have been part of a very long running plan that has it's origions as far back as the Sumerian civilisation, which started 5000 years ago and was the first civilisation with written records and therefore the first official civilisation that is known about. The Egyptian civilisation officially emerged 700 years later and had alot in common with the Sumerian civilisation.

The Website is factually incorrect in many places. Moreover, it uses not-so-subtle innuendo to make other religions (other than Christianity, of course) seem sinister. For example, it refers to five-pointed stars being used in many of the symbols of Islam (such as the star and crescent). These are generally five-pointed stars, which the author claims is an "occult" symbol. Yes, it is. And it is also a very common symbol in other contexts, both religious and non-religious.

It's something like saying someone must be an occultist, because he drank milk as a kid, and any occultist kids drank milk when they were kids. The logic is flawed.

Abraham is the patriarch of the Abrahamic religions, as you might guess from the name. Those religions are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Islam goes back to Ishmael. Christianity and Judaism go back to Isaac. Ishmael and Isaac were Abraham's sons.

The truth about Abraham may very well be that he never existed as a historical figure, but is a melding of different historical or mythical men. Using the "truth" about Abraham to knock other religions is uncalled for.
