[erlang-questions] Why Learn Elixir if it's built on Erlang? Why not just learn Erlang?

I've been spending time teaching my self Elixir and Erlang. But I can't
help but ask why learn Elixir if's built on top of Erlang? Why not just
learn Erlang. I enjoy learning both but what's the point?

I find myself constantly referring back to the Erlang Manual to understand
Elixir. It feels redundant.

Any experienced Erlang/Elixir users have thoughts?
