I am a secular hindu. I believe in science and math but also theoretical physics. Notice how it says "theoretical". I believe we don't know everything about the physical world yet and some things warrant the black box treatment. But we don't have to always understand how something works before we can speculate or theorize. Einstein started with visions and ideas. So did Faraday. And Newton. They theorized. I likewise theorize.

JeffMesser comments on May 18, 2018:
your first assumption is faulty. patriarchy comes as a by-product of our respective roles in a hunter/gatherer group. when we became farmers our group dynamics changed. we made larger groups to accommodate the new tasks and we incorporated more outsiders. THAT was why we ended up with religion. we had expectations for everyone to get along in close company and those evolved into community standards which become religion.

JeffMesser comments on Apr 29, 2018:
why do people assume a mystical answer when they are confronting an unknown? thats why we are in this whole mess of deities within a religion in the first place. It all started out as the "rules" (or whatever we want to call them) that existed in the little communities that were bound together by farming. We had shifted from nomadic hunter/gatherers grouped mostly as a small, immediate family to little farms with many family members and other families even ... spreading to the point of making the first villages. To live together they had a few rules that would inevitably arise as we were always accustomed to just familial closeness in the past. This is where the doctrines that would eventually form religious beliefs first began - from the social interaction necessary at the shift from hunter/gatherers to farmers. If we'd left the stupid "assumed mysticism" out of it we'd have the history of a nice set of social documents that could refine future governance. Instead we taint it with "spiritual beliefs".
