If you were raised by Chimps let's just say you were raised by illiterate pre-scientific Humans.
You would be a Polytheist why?
Because your situational mind would not associate things such as "tools" and "trees" together.
A hammer hits the log so therefore they must be the same group.
Because of this situationalism you would no matter what, give the attributes of Nature, (Lightning, wind, fire, trees, people attributes), to
Every thing you can think of, would have some "God" driving it.
Until you began to understand a little more, and then you'd refine your religion, and keep refining it based on how you view the world.
