They have pictures hanging from walls, they reenact scenes while dressed up like their fav characters, etc. Point I'm trying to make is this - If you yourself don't know the intent of the Puranic literature why do you assume that it contains 'religion' w...

No different process than b@stardizing English into Angrez and then coming up with attributes (steriotypes) that aren't true. Original language does not control appelation change in other language.

They did invent history. Joseph Atwill provides a lot of evidence for this in his book Caesar's Messiah. Puranas are credible in the sense that the intent was to spread the science of the Upanishads in story form. Therefore, it's a unit of learning and not a myth like the Semitic stories. Intent is...
