I don't need to take a poll. It's blatantly obvious.

Why would he. The Egyptians came to Greece with the names of the gods in

From historical documents. Obviously this is all above your head.

You are complexly crazy. The date and history given is the date and history accepted by all ancient, medieval and renascence historians including Sir Isaac Newton, and all genuine modern day historians.
<<<Of course there was a religion in Greece prior to the arrival of the
No there wasn't.

Which don't provide any evidence whatsoever for the existence of any
religion before the time and events Herodotus is referring to.

No they do not. Only written documents referring to gods and worship provide evidence and those documents including those written in Linear B document the worship of the Olympian gods and before them nothing.

As I have explained already all the so-called Indo-European gods were the
same as the Phoenician and Hurrian gods and all appeared at the same time in
about 1700 BC since they were all deified kings and is stated clearly by
Philo, Porphyry and Eusebius.

Can you explain this?>>>
All the historians in the world who specialise in the period in question and have read the historical documents from and pertaining to this period know this. You clearly are the exception, but then again you are not a genuine historian. I have already given you the references. Read them.
<<<indeed, Delphi to a great degree represents part of that synthesis.>>>
No it doesn't. You don't have a clue about Delphi or the Greek religion.
<<<Yes, Aggie, you are correct. I know nothing!!! ....humbly going
