    Most world religions do believe in the One God, even Hinduism, because they look at demi-gods as aspects of the one God. Hinduism in the beginning was much more matriarchal than other traditions with worship of the Divine Mother and women were scholars and sages and were educated. It became more patriarchal as the invaders came to India. Native American traditions honor Mother Earth, Elders and have matriarchal elements, like Hinduism has. Hinduism also honors the ancestors like the Native traditions and the Eastern religions of many countries. Christianity was matriarchal in the beginning under Jesus, for he taught women, unlike most of Judaism at the time. The Essene Jews were different  because they had female teachers. Jesus did take ideas from Hinduism and Buddhism, such as the kingdom of God is within. Hinduism and Buddhism say the same thing in saying go within or divinity is within the person. Bahais believe in the unity of humanity and equality of womankind. They are also for the ecology of the planet. Many traditions teach the golden rule, respect for Mother Earth, honoring your parents and elders. All teach against greed and helping the poor. Jesus said it was easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for the rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. In Hinduism the rich and powerful have more karma attached to their actions because they affect more people with their actions. Krishna taught against anger, lust and greed. Pagan traditions honor the Goddess and Mother Earth. Sufi tradition honors many ideas of various traditions. Mohammed taught equality of the sexes, but the men around him rejected that idea so it went the other way. They teach worship of the one God like Judaism does. They believe in giving alms to the poor.

      Great, but do they diverge somewhere or are they all convergent?
