and again

There's evidence in the sense that we have the works of many philosophers from as early as BC, and from many cultures and places so I'm saying, if these men existed, and if they helped other men with their problems I imagine that most people would acknowledge their superiority in clear thinking and question them for their personal matters and it seems to me that one of the things that would terrorize a small-minded person would be death, and what is after it So naturally, what I guess most people would question those other smart men would be exactly that question what happends after death It seems most philosophers conceived of religions that reward the individual when he's "good" which means to survive and coexist with other humans I guess philosophers thought that this would protect the smart ones from the stupid ones perhaps this worked for some time but some more evil ones learned that trick as well, and thus religion is where it is today, with all these religious wars and everything that they brought.

These are merely speculations and I'm not claiming this to be the start of any religion, but I propose it as a possibility for the origins of the idea of religion.
