So, imo, the concept of gods arose in hominids together with the development of speech.
I agree with that R/S. But, all we have are clues but no proof.

Red Ochre, Venus figurines, etc. Maybe. :?

Spirits, ancestor worship, etc.
It's all the same shit to me. Literally: horse manure. Fairy tales. Scary stories. Mind manipulators.

The difference between the two is that no one gets rich on animism.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
