Why so many names for same legendary figure?
All were gathered together in Babel under rule of Nimrod, all followed the religion of mystery Babylon.
Then came confusion of the languages, so they all had the common experience, but around 70 different words for it – a different word in each language for the same thing…
They all worshiped the same figure, but then had 70 different names for him. As time went on the different language groups separated geographically and socially and though the religion/mythos had the same root, they diverged over time from generation to generation.
