I wonder if that is because the religions spend money promoting the religions and their continuing generations of believers, most of whom were firmly inculcated as children, whereas the scientists perhaps would rather spend money on research today for the future?!!Quote
Archaeologists know far more (or think they do, anyway) about ancient religions than they do ancient science and technology. :))
Yes, the background and history of beliefs helps us to understand human behaviour, but to continue to promote god etc ... well, I just sigh ... ...
