Consider this: in the Bible myth, Moses goes up the mountain to confer in private with God where no one can see what's going on. He comes back with a set of tablets to find people partying around a golden calf because, well, escaping slaves carry a lot of gold. He smashes the tablets and goes back for another set, and the new set starts with Commandments saying there is only one god (his) and no other gods shall be worshiped. In the meantime God (typically) says nothing and it's only Moses who gets cheesed off about all this.
Sounds awfully convenient, doesn't it? And there's nothing to suggest that the whole story is anything but fiction in the first place but it's used for thousands of years to control what people do.
"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires."
