Is there any better proof of the man made nature of modern monotheism than their root in the Abrahamic Tradition? All 3 major monotheistic religions spring from the same fount. They all worship (at the core) the same God that Abraham worshiped. Their differences, biases, dogmas, edicts and pronouncements are all similar, yet different. The arguments are over translations, prophetic fulfillment, the messiah... These are simply the expressions of the men that wrote the new holy books and those that followed or created their stories and wrote them down, or passed them along verbally. It is a fissure in a larger, overarching religion. It is just culture and politics. It is what we do.
