'For all the Gods are one god,' she said to me then, as she had said many times before, and as I have said to my own novices many times, and as every priestess who comes after me will say again, 'and all the Goddesses are one Goddess, and there is only one Initiator.
And to every man his own truth, and the God within.'
Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Mists of Avalon
When early man stood beneath the stars at night after a day focused on survival did he contemplate the terrifying and mysterious powers of nature he was engulfed in? Did he ask these questions of himself? Many argue that since humans have the ability to contemplate their own existence, there must be a God. Did ideas of God and a soul come with this self awareness as we began the journey into consciousness? Julian Jaynes argues that until late in the second millennium B.C. men had no consciousness but were automatically obeying the voices of gods. Until that time we had a “bicameral” brain, that being “a state in which cognitive functions were divided between one part of the brain which appears to be "speaking", and a second part which listens and obeys.” I will leave the contemplation of consciousness to those above my pay grade. But it is clear in his theory that language is key. Noam Chomsky, the "father of modern linguistics" has said as much. Biologist Mark Pagel says that language is a piece of "social technology" that allowed early human tribes to access a powerful new tool: cooperation, by the ability to plant an idea directly into the mind of another human. So I am thinking of language and the existence of prayer. When early man looked around and came to a concept of god was the need to communicate with that god the starting point for languages, not the need to communicate with others in his tribe? And from there to communicate these ideas of god to others which in turn evolved into spiritual ritual to invoke their god?
Most of the world’s 7 billion people practice some kind of religion. The forms it takes on are vast and eclectic. To make a comprehensive list is near impossible. Many try to explain why we even have or need religions and where it all started. Was it simply a means of forming mutual cooperation and sets of rules to live by in order to keep the peace? Some say the primary reason for religious belief is to create an environment to nurture self-control and valuable social behaviors. Was the need for an all seeing ever watchful God what makes us virtuous? Since the fear of death is said to be one of the primary motivational avenues of all human behavior is the fear of eternal punishment to strong to resist? Unbelievers argue that one does not need religion to have a moral compass. - Kether

The Yazidis people of Iraq believe that a god — known as Yasdan — created the world and entrusted it to seven angels. They worship a divine figure known as Melek Taus, or the “Peacock Angel,” who is among the angelic seven who collectively rule and oversee the planet. These angels can apparently be reincarnated into human form occasionally.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few
people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the
Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the
Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his
multi-armed form and says, "Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of
worlds." I suppose we all thought that one way or another."
