  •  Nah, the other question (6+ / 0-)

    on how their version of god and such became the foundational one for the west, not how they developed or came upon it, which is also interesting but not what I was asking. Both, of course, are part of the overall question of how we got here, in terms of dominant religions and religious thought.

    Personally, I'm increasingly leaning towards the Mel Brooks version that has this old geezer (although he wasn't that old at the time) pulling this practical joke for the ages, not realizing it would be taken so seriously and lead to so many wars and buildings and such--let alone Joel Osteen and the jazz hands thingee with the closed eyes and constipated look.

    Oy gevult, it was just a joke you putzes! There's no god--it was my crazy uncle Sammy the sphepherd with the white beard and cane!
