The power/control/paranoia structure of western religions is entertaining, but nothing more than just a control structure.
What is most interesting in all the mythologies is what they have in common (beyond the borrowing from each other)
as i already said, anything that expects you to accept it on faith alone should be avoided at all costs. It is nothing more that a tool created to control the masses.
I have felt that humanity in its quest for these artificial orders to pacify his fears got it backwards. If there is anything we should be respectful of (and note i say respectful, not fearful or worshipping) are the primary forces of the universe that are the foundation of our universe. Respect life (all forms, from a systems persoective, not just organic), respect yourself and your part within various systems.
