All religions serve and equal purpose..it Reminds us as humans we have the right to believe in anything that makes us happy. I don't know the exact beliefs on Hinduism but I believe that in order for the modern world to transcend and become more advance we as a people need to accept the beliefs of others.
Hinduism, like all religions, is anachronistic in the modern world. It is clearly a vestige of the ancient world, when people needed to believe in fantastical myths to explain how nature worked. Although a lot of people follow the traditions of this religion today, no rational person can believe in the far-fetched stories of animal gods and magicians.
