The evolution of religious beliefs

To early Man, the gods were real in the same sense that the mountains, forests, or waterfalls which were thought to be their homes were real. For a long time, the spirits that lived in drugs or wines and made them potent were believed to be of the same order of fact as the potency itself. But the human creature is curious and curiosity is bold. Hence, the discovery that a reported god may be a myth.
