This was inspired from discussion in another thread, but I found it to be a good question. And post it here as a separate topic.
Is there something about the human condition that would require us to have something (esoteric or just something unprovable) to give us as individuals
some sort of focus? Be it an organized tradition religion or aliens, or concept like unconditional love or a scientific theory. Is there something
that we have a need to believe in that has to be taken on faith that the perception is correct?
Many civilizations the world over have had their sky gods, water gods, tree spirits and such. And cultures did often clash over the different
concepts. Just in the confines of the Bible there are many sects that practiced many different religious. The Romans and their Pantheon of Gods that
we consider mythology today was very real to them. The Ancient Egyptians and their Gods. The Hebrews, the foundations of Christianity, etc.
