First, a general complaint that I hope will help you
> improve the "readability" of your works: while I

Dear Michelle:
This might come as a shock to you, Michelle, but nearly every heathen and pagan culture that has ever lived believed THERE IS A GOD.  The God of the Scriptures?  NO--just a god.  Can and will that belief in "a god" save them? NO
"Neither is there salvation in any other for there is NONE other Name [Jesus Christ, ver.10] under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST BE SAVED" (Acts 4:12).
Now this might also come as a shock to you, Michelle, but one CANNOT deciper the "Name Jesus Christ" by looking at wild animals eating the grass!
God be with you,
