Birth of Religion

Power can award us or penalize us, so we seek to appease it.

Power of adults over children.

The sun for food and comfort.

Rain for crop growth and life.

Other natural forces.

So we create a super power– almighty, dominate being– and worship it—in fear of penalty and hope of reward (heaven and hell).

The birth of religion.
