Comparative study of mythology and religions discloses that a number of events narrated in religious Scriptures were famous during mythological period though Scriptures don't refer to them. Do you think that religions took feed from mythology?

Of course they did.
In those days, they didn't distinguish between myth and history. When Utnapishtem survives the flood in the epic of Gilgamesh, that was not seen as part of a story. After all, Uruk was a real city, Gilgamesh was a real king, therefore the story of the flood had to be real.
So when it came to write something like Genesis, they wrote "history" as closely as they could to the stories they knew.1

yes, several religions have catered from old pagan rituals and other ancient rituals.
(for instance, Easter and Christmas in Christianity)
I also find many similarities in the "stories" of different religions. they just have evolved into slightly different things and scriptures have been interpreted differently over the centuries.
Yet somehow every religion still makes people think, theirs is the only true one. Crazy actually. Unnecessary1
