Climate Change and Politics seems to be doing fine with being substitutes for some people as a new religion if what I see happening is to be believed
as anything other than insanity?
I have to agree with this post.
People congregated in small groups which later grew and grew to small villages and towns and so forth, settling in one place and waiting for the
seasons to pass by. The clever ones who noticed the sun rising and the rain falling plants grew and agriculture was born, those who noticed the
patterns were most likely generally the smart ones and probably had a vague explanation for why it was happening. Religion was born.
Long story short, religion was a way to explain situations, how to act according to certain social meetings, etc.
If you ever read the bible it's basically just a 'how to' book on desert living 2000 years ago.
Of course with a bit of manipulation and muscle [The kings, warlords, rulers, etc] anything can be twisted in the favor of one large group over
another, it became a political tool, which started to become obsolete with the fast growing zeitgeist of math, technology and science.
Individuals became aware, our minds evolved, and education made everyone "smart", democracy soon came in full force, and now we have large groups of
educated people making big decisions. Politics have taken over religion.
