    I think if Christianity had not come to Europe, paganism would have developed into something like a Western version of Hinduism.

    In Mormonism it's standard to talk to and about God as the Heavenly Father.

    I think it would be more like Shinto-like than Hindu-like.

    In Christianity, God is the Heavenly Father, while the Holy Ghost is the Feminine Energy. Not sure for which types of Christianity, but at least in some... In Orthodoxy there's a lot of mixing between old religion and Christian one, quite interesting.

    Here is the oldest representation of Shiva (depiction of the supreme masculine in Hinduism) ever found, from Mohenjo Daro archaeological site:

    Pashupati seal

    It looks quite similar to one plate of the Gundestrup Cauldron discovered in Denmark (see image here, couldn't upload it in the post, no idea why).

    There are still lots of similarities if we also look into folklore and myths.

    It's important to note that the original Sky Father has a female counterpart Mother Earth.

    It creates a lively interaction, a dance of balance. If one denies the female element Mother Earth and puts all focus on the male (thus infertile) part, this dance comes to a halt and imbalance occurs, thriving towards a standstill.

    Christianity failed to get rid of the female part, which is now represented by the "virgin" (infertility concept) Mary. This however is not christianity but Paganism, because our Aryan minds cant deal with monotheism.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
