Certain religions come about and have absorbed some of the mythology prior to becoming a religion. For instance I would like to know about the Roman Mythology and the Catholic religion and Greek mythology and the Greek Orthodox religion and so on and so forth. If you have any other corrolations speak them here too. I do not have an asner to this one so I would like to be enlightened.

Thanks and I have read some of his books. I read somewhere that the Catholic religion assimulated the gods of the pagans into the religion as the Saints. That is what got me to ask this question. I don't know if it is true or not.
I don't know about the saints, but the Catholics did assimilate some of the dates and festivities of the pagans to attract converts, like the Spring Equinox, but don't tell them that. LOL
Tnx. The question was more in the line of deities, life events or worship practices that were prior known as Myths that became the roots for those religions.
My question has nothing to do with the Bible and I am not fighting. Water does come from rocks and mountain and that isn't a myth. You did not answer my question at all.
LG - I did not mean to imply you were fighting. I just said that because a lot of people fight over religion. As for the Bible - I noticed you mentioned various denominations of Christianity, so I pointed out there are myths in the Bible as well.
