Rflection on "Origin of Religions?!"

Posted by ramesam on 10 Jul 2008 at 02:58 GMT

This is an interesting article from a philosophical perspective. Amongst the ancient religious practices, particularly in the Greek, Indian, Egyptian, Chinese and so on, all of the natural entities and forces are viewed with a "capacity to think human-like" by the early human beings. May be the same sort of TOM concepts and cortical mechanisms operating in the early humans. Pursuit of this line of analysis may throw valuable light on the origins of religions!
