Religion is for those who have little
critical faculties. To believe what
others have written about supreme
beings, puts them in the same position
as early man, who had no writings to
believe. He was content with oral myths.
There was no understanding of the world.
Once writing appeared so did the gods. The
myths became subsumed into writings. First,
the pagan gods, then much later monotheistic
gods. This is the legacy today.
