The Inca have a religion really different from ours today. They were polytheistic for one thing. They wore gold as a sign that they were closer to their sun god Inti. Some of their beliefs are similar to the Catholic religion, so when the Spanish invaded, they were easy to converted over to that religion. They also have a version of Adam and Eve.
The Inca civilization had only one religion. They were polytheistic. This consists of many gods and godesses. Other peolpe to follow polytheistic religion were the Greeks, the Aztecs, and the Mayans. The most important god was Viracocha, the creator god. The children of Viracocha were the sun god, Inti, and the earth goddess, Pachamama. They in turn had the weather god, Illapa, the sea goddess, Mamacocha and the moon goddess, Mamaquilla. All of these gods and goddesses were worshipped at different times and for different reasons. However, none of the gods prayed to more than Inti.
