The Mayans had a polytheistic religion. They worshiped many different gods and goddesses. They believed that the sun and moon were helped by the gods and they believed in an underworld. They believed that their gods lived on top of mountains. They believed that sacrifices to the gods would please them and that the gods brought their wrath upon the people when the people did something that did not please the gods.
The Hebrews believed that God made the Earth and Man and assigned people to the various areas around the globe. The Hebrews believed that the whole of the Earth, not just the Promised Land, was God's and His to do with as He saw fit... including taking it away from the Canaanites and giving it to the Hebrews... which is what Abraham had been promised.
The Mayans believed that the best people should be given to the Gods to show that they were still devoted. They also believed that the Blood was what the Gods wanted. if a King gave his blood it was thought to make a link with the Gods, and so the people followed their leader and gave their blood as well I hope this helps
No. This is a common canard brought up by people who argue against the validity of Islam's monotheism. Prior to Islam there were a number of henotheists (people who believed in one god's superior over other gods), monolatrous henotheists (people who believed in many gods but worshiped only one), and polytheists. Islam stated quite clearly that it was none of these, both monotheistic.
Some similarities are that they both believed in god/gods/godesses. Israel had monotheism, believing in on god. Egypt believed in multiple gods and goddesses which is polytheism. Another similarity is that they both had promised lands, Israel's promised land was Canaan, or the land of milk and honey.
The only leader in atheism is your self. No. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in gods. It's not a movement, or an organisation. Having a leader would be a bit like people who don't watch sports having a leader. It's simply something they do not do, and so it would be impossible to have a leader. There are some atheists who many people respect for their sensible views, but they are not leaders…
Monks pray to the gods of their own religion. In Buddhism, as it has no gods, monks do not pray to any god. If there is mo god, they are not technically praying as that is a process to either curry favour with a god or ask for the gods' intervention. What Buddhist monks do is meditate on the aspects of their philosophy and how they and their fellow people can be brought closer to…
Zeus thinks Percy stole the bolt because Posiedon and Zues were fighting, and since Gods can't take each others possesions, he thought his only son did. It was because he was the son of Poseidon, whom tried to overthrow Zeus by catching him with a golden net and will not let him out unless he promised to be a better leader. Although gods cannot steal another's symbol of power, demigods can.
The Estrucans were an ancient nomadic people group that brought the Greek ways to Rome. The Greeks taught the Estrucans how to wear Greek clothes, how to look like Greeks and to worship the Greek gods. The Estrucans then brought the Greek ways to Rome when they went on trading expeditions. The Romans took on the Greek ways and gave the gods new names. Eg: Venus as Aphrodite, Jupiter as Zeus, and so on.
In Hinduism there exists a lot of gods and goddesses, of course i agree with that. The basic or first religion that emerged in India is Hinduism. According to me people would have worshiped their leaders or kings of their tribes and as the time passes they became forefathers and later they became ancestors and eventually Gods. Each tribe represented by a King or Leader, these leaders are expected to have Super natural powers. Hence…
