New Age Poppycock
Native Americans discovered monotheism too, quite without European influence. There was a prophet, born on Catalina Island evidently who operated primarily out of the future site of Los Angeles and preached that all other religions were evil and had to go. There was also Dekinawideh and Hiawatha, but I digress. In particular he demonized Coyote, the relatively benevolent Promethean figure up until that time, making him out to be the Evil One. The new religion spread widely through the southwest. Funny how history repeats itself, doesn't it? I note with interest that certain New Age faiths, despite being fairly mellow about most things, are almost unanimous in their tendency to demonize Christianity and (as the Christians did before them) distort history to suit their own world picture. Well, so it goes... I'm more of an old-fashioned animist, myself.
