Would it then be too much to consider what appears to ... the same. For that reason it becomes somewhat difficult to discuss ancient astronomical lore without also discussing the ancient deities. But while, in Egypt, astronomy was not divorced from religion until the advent of the Greeks under the Ptolemies, other centers of civilization began to diversify much earlier when a new breed of intellectuals sought to devote their time to the study ... is for this reason that we find him heading the pantheons of every ancient nation as, unknown by his very adherents, we continue to find him heading that of the great religions of the modern world.

Whatever the exact nature of the original beliefs of the Aryan race, their cosmogonical faith followed different routes and processes of evolution in the various regions within which they settled.
