Now this is going to all sides.
Why did god wait thousands of years to show himself in form of religion?
Meaning why did people go to worshiping in trees and water to believing in one single god? Why did people go from believing in many gods to believing in one god?
I may not like religion but I respect some of you do so nice (civilized) answers only please.
G-d didn't wait. Man is slow. Religion is man's ceremony. G-d said hello w' the First Wind. The First Wind is what you hear when your silent. The Hebrews first introduced monotheism as we know it.
Ceremony is repetitive. Repetition reinforces and strengthens habit and faith becomes natural. Because that works, like practice in sports; arts; and sciences, insights occur. Better music; better science; advances in mathematics and more profound strengths in psychologies; philosophies; and introspections become a reality. Religion
is a choice and should remain so. Non-religiosity does not a valid argument make for the need of better song and science: neither does religiosity. These two ways are conclusions in an attempt of man to want better: man's true religion is to want "better"
. That's his real need. Better. More bueno. Mas good. Practice does make perfect. Throw a jam and see if the string slinger makes a mistake this time....have fun worshiping the music. It started with the First Wind.
