They had no beliefs and no words for belief. "Pray" in our language is associated with belief and "god" is a belief.

It follows that it is a mistranslation. If "god' meant "theory" in the Egyptian dialect of AL of course it meant the same thing in Sumerian.

The FACT is they said "all men prayed to the gods in the same language". This means there was one language. It means the person who wrote this believed there was one language. Everything everyone says discloses what he believes. Everything ancient people said disclosed what he knew. This is not a fine distinction and ancient words can't be understood if you don't understand that our language is parsed. It is this that was the confusion introduced at the "tower of babel". Ancient Language was not parsed. It just means exactly what it says.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
