former Molochian Script Critic
That depends on your definition of “Judaism”..
Amos5:26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch(Saturn) and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts.
Moloch[a] is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice. The name of this deity is also sometimes spelled Molech,Milcom, or Malcam.
The name Moloch results from a dysphemic vocalisation in the Second Temple period of a theonym based on the root mlk "king". There are a number of Canaanite gods with names based on this root, which became summarily associated with Moloch, including Biblical מַלְכָּם Malkam"great king" (KJV Milcom), which appears to refer to a god of the Ammonites, as well as Tyrian Melqart and others.
Rabbinical tradition depicted Moloch as a bronze statue heated with fire into which the victims were thrown. This has been associated with reports by Greco-Roman authors on the child sacrifices in Carthage to Baal Hammon, especially since archaeological excavations since the 1920s have produced evidence for child sacrifice in Carthage as well as inscriptions including the term MLK, either a theonym or a technical term associated with sacrifice. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus, due to the parallel mytheme of Cronus devouring his children.
Otto Eissfeldt in 1935 argued that mlk was not to be taken as a theonym at all but as a term for a type of fire sacrifice, and that *lĕmōlek "as a molk-sacrifice" had been reinterpreted as the name of a Canaanite idol following the Deuteronomic reform under Josiah (r. 640–609 BC). According to Eissfeldt, this 7th-century reform abolished the child sacrifice that had been happening.
Moloch has been used figuratively in English literature from John Milton's Paradise Lost (1667) to Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" (1955), to refer to a person or thing demanding or requiring a very costly sacrifice.
Since most dominate charistic of human nature is insecurity, so to dream up an invisible father figure who created everything and is sympathetic to our problems was a comforting idea.
There was no formal education a 100,000 years ago, just survival and food gathering information. Even now, the lower the intelligence or the education level of people in general, so then religion can replace logic.
Some say, the Egyptians invented religion about 15,000 years ago because of the abundance of religious relics but I believe it to be more than 100,000 years ago.
Most religions seem to be variations of Egyptian religions worshiping someone with God like powers. The exception seems to be the Buddhist religion, their Buddha was never claimed to be a god, he is depicted as a contented fat guy having taught good morals.
Most religions are now claiming a human like Sky God. It all starts by brain washing little children from generation to generation.
The whole world and every living thing was created by this human like Sky God who did everything by magic, and who will be on our side if we praise him many time a day.
I am no expert on Judaism but it seems to be just another religion based on old Egyptian superstitious stories and glued together with a persecution complex.
