Thanks for the replies.
So atheism is a recent construct then?
I just find it interesting that separate cultures can discover religion.

Perhaps you're right.
I just found some comfort with the idea that maybe, just maybe, a (G)od(s) does exist. If a culture in the orient and a culture in the middle east and a culture in the northern tier of Europe (without having come in contact with each other) can discover religion, then maybe there is something to it.
Were there any atheist pre-historic cultures

So in other words, the less educated a culture is, the more likely it is recognize a higher power. See what I'm saying?edit on 18-10-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)

I don't think there were. And if there weren't, doesn't that give some indication of a higher being? A god? A pantheon of gods? A God?
