One blogger who carries on the Diffusion idea is Alice Lindsey in "Just Genesis."

She sees the Old Testament faith as having roots in the Horite priesthood diffused from the peoples of the Nile (Nilotic). She has a lot of information on this, and some good study of artifact and language, as well as culture, to support her views.

I love how Chesterton, in "Everlasting Man," embraces the possibility of all these ancient civilizations without once feeling threatened for the Faith.

C. S. Lewis, too, in many of his works.

I remember C.S. Lewis saying that he was not shocked by parallels in Christianity and Paganism, but that he would be shocked if there were none.
