Actually, it is a minority opinion Shaheen. Generally, ancient city states had patron gods such as Melkart, lord of the city. When states were built they had to accommodate each city’s god idea. To unite into large states like Egypt or Mesopotamia, you had to make some order out of all these ideas. They started out making families out of these gods. But eventually as the state got more and more organized, they centralized state power in one main god. Even though the people retained the ideas that were important to them. And this is pretty much where we are today. IMO, of course.
