By virtue of the verbal and written words contrived and contained within the 'holy writings' and their subsequent 'holy books' during the
development of the first two Abrahamic religions as well as the later Abrahamic religion(s), it is safe to say that the known ancient religions
consisting of the contemporary polytheistic beliefs as well as any other known beliefs during and prior to said development(s) were regarded and
taught to their respective followers of these two first Abrahamic religions as well as the subsequent Abrahamic religions, as being myths.
It is relatively safe to say that we can include the majority of aboriginal beliefs/religions from across the globe as also being regarded and/or
deemed as myths in the 'eyes' of the current big three belief systems... Judea, Christianity and Islam... and in some respects the small but
growing newest Abrahamic faith system the Baha'i Faith. In spite that many of the aboriginal beliefs/religions are not so ancient given that many
have been discovered throughout the past 4 centuries.
Ok so I clearly pointed out the quite obvious... and no, it does not answer the question as to "why they are deemed as myths".
In my very humble opinion, the answer to that is simple... it is inherent to each new religion to put asunder all competing faiths. And that
competition is clearly for followers for the funds and social / political power they bring to the new religion(s), or more specifically the leaders of
said religion(s). The proof is in the pudding as it were, just look at the big three and their political clout.
Here is something that no one in this thread has touched on as yet... this competition for followers between the big three is made very difficult and
quite violent over the past, at least, 1900 years by virtue of their stark similarity... they all believe in the same godhead, albeit through
That being said, if one says the other is a myth, they create a paradoxical paradigm. But religion being what it is, of course in spite of that
paradox there is one that does openly imply that point.
None of the big three have ever been able to provide any scientifically verifiable evidence to substantiate their given godhead. In spite of the fact
that they have had at least 1500 years to do so... ergo... I support the contention that all Abrahamic religions - and by extension of the same
question of substantiation, all religions - be deemed as myth.
