God created the human mind. The sacred fire, sent down by God to the earth, taught people to make flint weapons, to hunt, to fish, to eat fried food. The cult of grain opened the idea of burials, temples, sedentary lifestyle, cloth, bread, cereals and legumes. The cult of truth and reason created science. Thoughts of God have taught man to think.

Writing was invented to record the words of God, so as not to forget or distort the words of God. God doesn't talk to people that often and there was a need to keep the divine revelations in mind. The words of God brought law and order into the world, became the Foundation of society and the state.
It is said that European civilization stands on the Foundation of Greek philosophy. But the Foundation of Greek philosophy is the philosophy of Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Vedas and Zoroastrianism.

If right understanding of idols and idolatry, we should realize that the worship of human reason does not deny love and attention to his body, liver, heart, muscles, etc. the Main thing to remember is that idol should be useful and beautiful, and it is always less than the whole and total. Moreover, the heart is no better than the liver, and the brain is no better than the rectum.
Monkeys have always had at least four idols... The most cowardly prayed to the bear, for he was terribly afraid. The wood was praying at the tree. The weakest, who were driven away from the tree, began to pray for the cow and the bull, for they saved them from hunger. Well, the most visionary began to pray to the fire, for they noticed that love and passion are the strongest.
Initially the monkey prayed for the tree, because the tree fed it. Then a lightning struck the tree and it burned down. Thus the monkey realized that the real God was this fire. However, many idolaters still pray for the trees, so we call them wooden and oak-headed fools. Smart people are those who pray for love, that is, for fire. However, those who are enlightened know more than anyone else.

The meaning of any religion is to turn a slave into a free man. Freedom is joyful, all religions offer freedom. The problem is, slaves don't need freedom, addicts just need drugs. Religion promises freedom from dependence, and slaves are interested only in Paradise, joy and bliss.
