... : "1. The common theme of religions is cosmic deliverance. This is against the widely-held view that it is not possible to attribute a common denominator to the variety of religious phenomena, and that we must be content to discover family resemblances among them. "2. Particular religions are cultural embodiments of a common threefold dynamic consisting of cosmic complaint, ... the mounting evidence in the most disparate disciplines of researches which unwittingly, and therefore all the more persuasively, tends to reinforce his premises. One recent example in the field of religion is a work (which, I confess, attracted me by its title): The Fragile Universe- An Essay in the Philosophy of Religions by Patrick Burke (London: ... , 1979: £8.95).

... polemic can be avoided. We have had a taste of an ongoing scientific polemic at this symposium, and need only remind ourselves of the greater heat generated in the past by religious polemics to understand why both are best dispensed with. The work of Velikovsky is in fact susceptible to use in religious polemic as well as scientific. This has already been begun ... My project here is a kind of spectral analysis of religions- Egyptian, Hebrew, Christian, Islamic; Teotihuacano, Mayan, Hopi, Aztec- and since the subject of religion has traditionally involved polemic, I would like to begin by considering calmly for a moment the most effective means by which polemic can be avoided.

However, it would seem that it was the inception of human sacrifice which was at the root of the first organised religions and that complex cultures arose only in response to centralised temple worship.

When asked the reason for the sacrifices, which were conducted always with religious rituals, the Aztec spokesmen replied that the god managing the Sun depended on them. If the sacrifices were suspended, the Sun would not rise and set, and this glorious ... . No culture has been free of cannibalism in its history, nor are most religions that profess gods fully exempted today. Apparently cannibalism touches upon some vital nerve center of historical religion.

... and fetishes of the savage. It is interesting that the advocates of the various evolutionary theories, in their fascination with present-day primitive cultures, almost never concern themselves with the oldest religious texts and symbols which have come down to us. The sacred hymns and eulogies of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, reveal a tradition of a "great god" reaching back into ... us that human reason gradually modified capricious spirits of "vegetation," "spring," "the ancestors," or "sexual power" into the great gods of global religion. Of such an evolutionary process, however, one finds little evidence. The great edifices erected by Herbert Spencer, E.B. Tylor, and James G.

... object-- the description may be close, and when a mass of separate hallucinations is analyzed statistically, one does obtain averages and types. When two people discuss a similar religious experience- a visual revelation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, say- one can statistically adumbrate shared social and psychic features of the people that tend to qualify them for ... why mankind once was much more religious than now. Geology and archaeology can demonstrate (with much more research than they are inclined to provide) the actual basis for enhanced early religion. Psychology and the history of religion can show how the religious mind has expectedly peaked in these actual stress periods and subsided when the strains relaxed. Practically all historians of religions ... religion and renowned modern theologians have accepted evolutionary theories of cultural development in describing religious history.
