74. It seems like there's a sort of evolution from one age to the next.
Edited on Tue Apr-19-11 01:56 PM by sudopod
There are different and varying numbers of names and stories, but the essentials of broad human morality stay the same (edit: with some rare but important innovations!). It's clear, for example, that the schools of Buddhism derive from a branch off the family tree of Hinduism. The many extant Christian denominations and Islamic schools have a common ancestor in an extinct branch of Judaism, and are the survivors of a vast branching and equally vast mass extinction of new varieties that happened in late antiquity.

We had a neat discussion about it a while back!
