I argumented from the point of common belief, Dalibor from the theological stance.

The common belief of people knew little if anything about semitic tradition, Saints, the essence of Christianity in general. So it is plausible that their practices were redesigned to fit in the Christian worldview. Else it wouldn't be plausible for common folk to attribute traits of former pagan deities to human Saints (thunderer, rainbringer etc.).

Dalibor argumented that the genesis did surely occure in mutual influence, but that the Christian church does not worship pagan deities, but venerates Saints of the Christian thought. What the common folk sees in these practices is irrelevant from his point of view.

With this I agree.
