Since ancient times people looked for other beings to venerate and treat like gods and do everything to please them hoping they will help them.
The oldest named deity from a textual source is Inanna, a Sumerian goddess of sex and war. We have a pictographic symbol of her that dates from 3200 BC which would come to be the basis for her cuneiform name during the Jamdet Nasr period.
The thing is that none of these thousands of ancient gods helped people. All these civilizations are gone now. Also, there is no proof that they were ever gods. What is a god? A superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes.
I don’t know who or what triggered people to believe that they are not able to live their lives by themselves and they need a “god” to help them live their life.
We have proof that religion started in the Upper Paleolithic around 50,000 years ago, but new controversial evidence shows that religion could have been enslaving people since the Middle Paleolithic (300,000 years ago). Just stop and think, we’ve been on our knees for maybe even longer than 300,000 years, how is this possible? The answer is PROGRAMMING.
But here is another interesting fact: anatomically modern humans emerged around 300,000 years ago in Africa this is also the time science noticed that our DNA got mysteriously modified and no one knows exactly why and who did it because it’s not a natural DNA evolution or adaptation, it’s a sudden (overnight) modification.
Scientists have unearthed the jawbone of what they claim is one of the very first humans. The 2.8 million-year-old specimen is 400,000 years older than researchers thought that our kind first emerged. So according to this new discovery we’ve been on Earth for almost 3 million years and suddenly 300,000 years ago we started to believe in gods that magically came from the sky (this is how many old writings describe gods, as beings that came from the sky).
There is a possibility that the original humans had 4 strands DNA called G-quadruplexes (G4s) and not just 2 strands as we, the modern humans, have now. Our origins couldn’t be fully erased and in 2020 a discovery with a 4 strand DNA in healthy living cells was published in the journal Nature and this can help people be stronger and healthier and exist for millions of years.
As you can see, science already proved that we are enough and that we are strong and powerful beings: soul & body, but somehow 300,000 years ago our DNA got changed to a half of what it was and we started to see ourselves as small and powerless creatures and any entity or hologram that was shown to us we fell down on our knees and worship it.
ENOUGH! 300,000 years of slavery is enough. We have to stand up and take our power back.
