I disagree here as well. You assume that one religion has been able to secure all the right information. Why is it that most all religions share the same underlying stories through history? Deep down they are all attempting to decipher and understand the same things in this world. This is why they all surround many of the same central themes. Just somewhere in the past someone decided that there absoultely MUST be this all powerful single figure that put all of this together. This was the only theory that could explain what they could not understand so that they felt better about the world. People fear the unknown. By making up this story about some old lovey dovey grandpa looking guy with the power to create the universe, it made them all warm and fuzzy and were no longer "scared of the dark".
