Religion often changes based on the area you live in because of traditions already practiced in that area. When a new religion is being implemented into a new area it isn’t uncommon to add their tradition to get people to believe. Although there are many religions around the world and different stories of how these religions start there all focused on knowledge. Many of the stories are passed down through religious tradition to teach young people and people that don’t believe. In the bible there are many stories to teach, for example The Tower of Babel, which teaches us that we must not be proud, but ask god for help.

And if we look at the religions around the world we, too, will find a plethora, a wealth of deities, gods and goddesses and spirits who have been and still are part of serious religious expressions. It helps to remember that the only thing that separates a myth from a mainline religion today is time. These myths are humanity’s earliest attempts to explain how the world came into existence, why there are people and all other manner of life, why bad and sad and glad things happen, why people act the way they do. We are still trying to answer those questions, and while there are some pretty good answers these days, we know that not everyone accepts them. We are still having in this relatively well educated country and even with all our media and science–raging debates about whether evolution or the Genesis creation story got us all here today.
