I was watching the news the other day, about the ongoing war and terror in the middle east, which of course at its core is about religion, whose god is the only god....same as it has been forever. It is mind blowing how long human beings have been slaughtering one another in the name of one god or another. I thought, "How long will it take for humans to evolve past such illogical behavior and ideas"?
A thought occured to me... What if the god concept had never become "real" to people? What if gods and goddesses never grew to be anything more than a story told around a fire? Hence, the topic of discussion I am proposing:
What do you think this world would be like if there had never been belief in any gods of any kind? How do you think our evolution would have been different, if at all?
I am looking forward to this conversation, everybody!
TC, are you wanting some material for a book?
No but That is not a bad idea, Tom!
