“Sometime between 100,000 years ago to the point where writing was invented, maybe about 7000 BC, we begin to have records of people’s supernatural beliefs,” Dow says (https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn13983-religion-is-a-product-of-evolution-software-suggests/#ixzz5zdTln4g7)
First of all, the idea of religion evolving over an enormously long timespan is incompatible with the Judeo-Christian framework. According to Genesis 1-3, religion started with the worship of the true God. However, mankind rejected God and worship deteriorated into the worship of creation. God is Creator and not a product of evolution.
Secondly, there were no psychologists alive to even observe the behaviors of any alleged hominins.
Thirdly, nobody really seems to be discussing how atheism and naturalism evolved.
If religion developed gradually to meet various emotional or adaptive requirements for continued survival, then what brought about that need?
If our senses and intuition bring us into contact with reality, then would not religious belief connect us with God who actually exists?
Even if it could be proven that a few religions were the product of evolution, that would still not prove all religions had the same origin or falsify the existence of God.
