Putting that aside, you have to admit that a great many people within those religions take them seriously and don't consider them excuses for their actions, even among the leaders of the big religions. They get taken seriously, which isn't quite the same for many of the smaller, newer ones.

Since the newest religions can trace their foundings to specific people and writings, would you say that these founding people set out to scam/joke with people?
