The thing with technology is if you use it once people know how to counter it.

In Sam Kok, a book I read when I was a kid, it's always ruse after ruse, tricks after tricks. Very rarely, if ever, technology plays huge role. There is Zhuge Liang crossbows that can fire 100 arrows. It may not even be real and used like what? Once....

comment What was the ancient Jewish pantheon?
In Judaism, Satan is a good guy. He just worked for God as prosecutor. Satan simply means adversary. God himself is sometimes called Satan in OT when he became adversary for someone. Unfortunately, translators sometimes translate as adversary and sometimes transliterate that as Satan.

Actually the answer is still not obvious. Wikipedia says that prostitution is illegal because it's against Jewish law. I actually disagree. My guess is, it's not. So we need historians.

That's not true Deut. 32 They stirred him to jealousy with strange gods; with abominations they provoked him to anger. 17 They sacrificed to [b]demons that were no gods[/b], to [b]gods they had never known[/b], [b]to new gods[/b] that had come recently, whom your fathers had never dreaded.
