i'm not 100% sure
but i believe archaeological evidence shows that it was possibly as early as 70,000 BCE



2.Why?
What possesed people to feel the need to worship a "higher power"?


well, some would say because people need it for sanity
others would say because they lacked the ability to fully explain almost all of what was going on around them, yet could fully question it
still a few more would argue the "god-shaped whole" argument that we are all born with the ingrained desire to search for a deity

i'd go with inability to explain the world



Id appreciate any help on these questions.


we'll be glad to help
