The most wonderful creations of the humans are the religions and the idea of gods. It so happened that those inventions were assisted by aliens on earth. The notion of God came into humans because of the wish to order the society and to make an entity above human. The wish to homogenize to the extent possible should be the strongest reasons, other than protecting the societies from constant decays, to invent religion and to believe in the notion of a God.
This is not to say that notion of gods and associated religions should be considered universal. Human brain unable to explain what its sensory organs perceived proposed the theory about God. This promptness is visible even today in temptation to generalize things without comprehending the whole. This prompt may not be present in all societies around the Universe as some could have left to their descendents to explain the observations. Why humans on earth could not do the same is because of the absence of consciousness for a long duration and by the time the consciousness arrived the formal survived religions took shape induced by externals.
Professors Ilkka Pyysiainen and Marc Hauser in their article in “Trends in Cognitive Sciences” while discussing the origin of religion have concluded that religion evolved as a byproduct of pre-existing mental capacities and not because it fulfilled a specific function of its own though it can facilitate cooperation in society. Religion is linked to morality in different ways. They based their conclusion on finding that people of different religions or no religion shows similar moral judgment when asked to comment on unfamiliar moral dilemmas.
Among the major religions three are the most dominant; Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. All the three religions were targeted at a particular type of dominant believers and reflected the changes which were possible among the primary believers. Christianity was targeted at Caucasian race, Islam at Arabs and Hinduism at upper caste Hindus. The religions while brought about biggest changes still reflected the fundamentals of the dominant society. Christianity; the individuality, egoism and universality among Whites, Islam; the larger brotherhood and fastidiousness of Arabian people and Hinduism; the caste and varna based exclusive system of upper caste Hindus rewarding the select few.
There are more established theories arising out of psychological evolution of humans and some of these are capitalism, communism, Hindu nationalism, Islamism, and Sinic atheism. Capitalism motto is to become super-humans. The system is rewarding to efficient and talented and adds to the memory, therefore adding to the longevity of life and experience. Communism is like a half-evolved species where God is anathema and so is capital. In its competitiveness with capitalism it is half-capitalist, half-Islamist. Hindu nationalism is based on the adapting and evolving nature of Hindus and Hinduism, with the motto being ‘if there is hope in the world, there is hope in India’. Islamism is fully evolved ideology in the time of Mohammedan era and early post-Mohammedan era. The recent upheavals in Arab world are probably the most important events for the Arabs in the post-Mohammedan history after the discovery of oil. Sinic atheism is based on sexual theism of Chinese people, China is less-than-half-capitalist and full communist state. The majority of Chinese do not believe in anything other than their self-interests.
That sex matters in the evolutions of humans gets reflected in another field: origins of languages. The humans in order to explain pleasures of sexual exclamations discovered languages. First it should be simple words, then with the increase in ids and libidos and humans settling and discovering pleasures and comforts in relative sense, should have led to the development of languages. Higher the sexuality and consumption of a particular civilization, higher and more sophisticated language it discovered. Also, zoological and botanical differences of the regions could also have contributed to the differences in the development of the languages. The above gets substantiated by the fact that Europeans and now Americans are biggest experts in sex and their languages are the most universal and sophisticated.
The future of human civilization depends on the ability to discover alternate fuel and on the evolution of American politics. The continuity of bipartisanism would mean that distinctions and differences are related and earth’s evolution is predictable. A non-bipartisanism America is where projections and probabilities do not work out. A non-bipartisan America would lead to divisionism of demography all over the world and hence to proliferation of identities and to conflicts.
In the end gods and politics are the best defense but if the original ideas of gods continue then they could lead to extremism and radicalism in many societies due to high-consciousness. The change is also required so as to transform the humans into superhumans. This requires proper understanding of gods and reinterpretation of religions. The id-driven behavior requires updating by all humans. It also requires invention of technologies and products based on them.
Capitalism is the only way humans can live up to the time permitted by geo-physical factors. In order to become a God humans need to have ability to invent a spaceship and through it contacting a relatively underdeveloped human civilizations and invent religions for it. But unless and until the proper understanding of religions is not proposed humans on earth can not get rid of the diktat of other super-intelligent extraterrestrial species.
Of course, if not properly done it could demean the religions which would be very bad for the people of earth. The gods should never be demolished fully and religions are great ideas; only thing is that they should be understood in properly constrained contexts. Killing gods partially sometime become mandatory for the capitalists. The only way God could be ‘killed’ is through products and not through ideology. The nearness to God is possible through contradictory behavior—morality and sexuality; morality of atheist and sexuality of a modernist. Morality and sexuality permitted and admitted by minds and bodies. The transformation from chimps to humans is irreversible.
