Susan stated
On what basis do you think they did not anthropomorphise these forces of nature?? Do you think they realised they were natural forces of nature?

Of course they did. They gave them special names. Of course, we give hurricanes male and female names nowadays, so we are just as anthropomorphic!

I don’t know anybody talking about flying horses anymore. Perhaps they think that way in England but I just don’t know anyone.

Susan again
If that were true, then there would be a cessation of people killing others because of the others’ beliefs. And, of course, the word God would lose its authority because the religious leaders claiming its existence would be shown to be spreading falsehoods.

Violence is a survival trait of all living things. It is human and part of the goal of religions is to control human violence. They certainly fail at times but that is because humans are bad, or weak, or sick. Science may study human moral rules but it does not create them. Spiritual people create them. And then use religion to support their moral ideas. Human violence is really tough to overcome but that is because it is based in Nature itself. And we are probably going backwards in that regard nowadays.

Happy Saturday,
