let me put it this way


if you went to school and studied the stuff, the very basic principals i put out in my posts are some of the things you'd learn in your first day of class.


do some research, man.


you guys sh#t all over religion, yet you've clearly got a very naive understanding of what it is that religions do or have done. you get caught up in the current workings of religion, and base your understanding of religion as such.

religions generate patterns of belief. they turned an unrelated group of people into "We." until religion came around that hadn't really occurred.
people settled in nomadic groups among family members until the advent of the city, which came about primarily because of farming and religion (literally one of the first things you're taught when you study ancient history, mind you.)

if you don't believe me, again, do your own research.

you'll find the same principals that mr jefferies and i are proposing are some of the most basic in this particular area of academia.
