just misunderstood by the people at the time?
Thats a pretty big misunderstanding. The Greeks and Norse alone had whole family trees and stories attached to their Gods.
Not to mention the Aztecs who did human sacrifices
And the Native Americans who worshipped Animal guides and the Earth itself and believed everything had its own spirit or energy attached that had to be respected.
I don't think there's a correlation. I do think the early-Christian conquerors incorporated aspects of those older religions and retuned them into something more Christian (ie Easter and Xmas were not there's, they just retooled an existing pagan holiday).
