Overview

Religion is not just religion in a conventional or traditional sense but what people truly believe. It is what they want to be or become. This religion could involve belief in God or belief in Money (Mammon). It could be social climbing or it could be the pursuit of truth. Religion embodies the values of a society.

In this regard, we see that belief and personality are key aspects of religion. Viewed in a dispassionate way, we can see that religion has changed over the ages as humanity has acquired new kinds of belief and new models of personality.

Following the scheme of world history presented in “Five Epochs of Civilization”, this book takes us on a tour of religion from prehistoric times into the computer age. The values of each epoch of world history are consistent with the dominant institutions of society. You will be amazed to see the changes in what you or your neighbor worship or have worshipped.
