Religion Within the Context of Human Development—Organization/Togetherness Bipedalism and

Religion Within the Context of Human Development—Organization/Togetherness
 
Bipedalism and the use of some primitive tools came first, followed by an expansion in the number of tools designed for many more purposes; then came tools to erect impressive structures and large buildings, to fashion boats or small ships, to provide water conveyance and new weapons, etc. Meanwhile early writing required… hieroglyphics, followed by cuneiform; and finally alphabets were created to provide maximum utility by dividing each spoken word into phonic segments that correlate with written symbols called letters.
 
A flourish in religious development was next, mainly to facilitate people working together well, and to do so in larger groups than before, which requires something for compelling individuals to conform—a basis for order or some consistent means that the public can begin organizing around, which early Judaism was meant to provide. But competing concepts for how best to accomplish that would have arisen also. And whatever it was that might be employed, it would have to be presented as the truth, which meant it would need to be extremely well crafted, that is, if it were to have much chance of being effective—which is why, today, in the face of an enormous amount of evidence against the factualness of Judaistic literature, most still can’t gain mental freedom from its superincumbent grip.
 
Christianity’s original leading form was essentially Judaism which had been much improved; then Catholicism was a customization of that, so that by the first half of the fourth century, at least according to Rome, Christianity looked like a good upgrade from Paganism… and then before the end of that same century forced conversions, ordered by Theodosius The Great, were being imposed. Which practice continued under others such as Charlemagne, then morphed into the Inquisition of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, which impelling was expressed by the Spanish Inquisition of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries also. Protestantism, however, still managed to emerge during that time: For some influential Catholics began to protest that Catholicism clearly failed when compared to the New Testament standard, while hoping and hypothesizing that if Christianity were practiced correctly (according to its scriptures) then the Hebrew Creator might be well pleased—assuming, of course, that the much storied Hebrew deity was unabashedly for real. Meanwhile, the rise of Islam in the seventh century helped many Arabs who were living in that arid Middle Eastern region to unite, therefore become more organized so they could begin working together far more effectively—which is the real reason (or secret) why Islam has been so successful. -DL
 
Please check out the following facebook pages: Atheist Standards For Children, Atheists Who Love, Reaching The Evangelical Mind, Secular Solidarity, and If Matter Were Eternal. This post relates to human evolution, as I see it, which doesn’t seem like a topic that would have much to do with physics (as If Matter Were Eternal is a page on physics). Meanwhile, if matter has always existed and if there is no spiritual realm whatsoever, then physics ultimately answers every topic.
