Catholic carmelites order and its PAGAN origins
the carmelites order is one of the most popular orders of the Roman Catholic Church, its followers wear a brown scapular that for those who wear it and die, will be granting special favors by the virgin Mary and be allowed in heaven.

But where does this order originate from ?

it started from hermits living on Mount Carmel in Israel in the 12th century.

It is also claimed by the order, that the prophet Elijah resided in a grotto there

According to the Bible in 1 Kings 18, the challenge was to see which deity could light a sacrifice by fire. After the prophets of Baal had failed to achieve this, Elijah had water poured on his sacrifice to saturate the altar and then he prayed; fire fell and consumed the sacrifice, wood, stones, soil, and water which prompted the Israelite witnesses to proclaim, "The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!". In the account, Elijah announced the end to a long drought; clouds gathered, the sky turned black, and it rained heavily.

Though there is no biblical reason to assume that the account of Elijah's victory refers to any particular part of Mount Carmel,[1] Islamic tradition places it at a point known as El-Maharrakah, meaning the burning.[2]

It also shares ties with Bahá'í Faith
