← Religion a figment of human imagination

I also agree with Mitchell Gilks. There is evidence for imagination, ethics and communicative abilities in animals. The antithesis requires that animals and humans evolved in fundamentally different ways. It is more likely that animals occupied different niches with varying requirements for imagination.
Religion took a hold in human development before science because it is an easier activity.
