Proposed merge with UrreligionEdit

side topic from the main article Shrikanthv (talk) 04:45, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

there is a case for disambiguation here, but Urreligion as intended here is a non-mainstream hypothesis from German Romanticism, and not a "side topic" of the evolutionary origins of religion. If anything, it is "anti-Darwinist", inasmuch as a German in 1810 could even be anti-Darwinist (a generation before Darwinism even became a thing). --dab (𒁳) 10:46, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

burial as evidence of religionEdit

"burials with grave goods clearly signify religious practices and concern for the dead that transcends daily life." Many other prehistoric discoveries are also ascribed to religious belief. Nonsense. One of the major reasons for the evolution and existence of religion is to explain what is unexplainable--still it's primary function in contemporary society. Paleontologists who discover a carving, a petroglyph, etc. are prone to "explaining" the significance of such discoveries in terms that make them "understandable." There are many other possible explanations for such discoveries, none of which "clearly signify religious practices." Carving of fat lady may be early porno or just a pastime. Burying bodies with their earthly possessions may be a means of avoiding conflict over who would get them. Or just sentiment. Or not wanting to be reminded of the death of a loved one. My first question to any paleontologist who investigates such discoveries would be "Are you a religious believer?" Be very careful of "clearly signify." Relative to the existence of deities, those who believe in such things are unable to explain why, over the 200,000 years of the existence homo sapiens, that these deities appear only in the last 8-10 thousand years. So, where were these gods hiding for all those millennia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.234.160.205 (talk) 08:31, 29 December 2017 (UTC)
