Re: 3.2

I understand that you don't believe in it but I was simply pointing out a religious aspect for why a pagan ritual would preface the doctrine of Jesus. The bible describes Adam and Eve supposedly having children, who they like andy parent would have taught them morals and values. The teaching and traditions could only be passed on by word of mouth and formalized by routine or ritual. Any repeated conversation will be confused or imbued with misinformation and mischaracterizations. Over time everything changes but it is possible that representative elements such as creation, birth, death, and end of time would be familiar.
