Was not the Babylonian Astarte selected as the goddess prototype of Mary?

The Catholic Answers

No. Astarte was a mythical non-historical person; Mary was historical. The legends concerning Astarte make her a goddess associated with all that is licentious and immoral. The historical Mary has never been regarded as a goddess, and was the purest woman who ever set foot on this earth.
