Hammurabi was here

What's really interesting about The 10 Commandments is that every valid major Law can be traced back to discover it's origins lay in The Big 10 to begin with.
And you can trace the Ten Commandments to Hammurabi's Code of Laws, which came long before the supposed time of Moses. But unlike the Ten Commandments, we still have the actual stone engraved with Hammurabi's Code. Though that might be because Hammurabi was real and the Hebrew people were never actually enslaved in Egypt. But why follow history and the actual archeological record when you can just make crap up?

God (and Satan for that matter) existed before The Bible and the events described in it existed of course. That means that several "religions" existed before Christianity and may basically be the same entities involved but not in the incarnations as we now know them as. Of course this is merely my hypothesis and doesn't have to be embraced by anyone else but it would account for the
claims Non-Christians make about other belief systems existing prior to Christianity
i can see your point but some civilizations like the myans had the solar system mapped out and christianity had the earth as the center of the universe for a long time and even persecuted anyone that claimed otherwise. so even if u include just the gods that are like christ as the same incarnation then it works but it still leaves out mass amounts of other gods that have different back stories.
