We will look at the niche needs that religion fills in a proto-religion in primitive societies as social evolution proceeds the need changes. Religion evolves along with the changing niche of the society. We will discuss how the path that evolution of religion takes is shaped by culture and culture in turn is tailored by the religion. We will focus on psycho-social forces that have shaped the evolution of world’s major religions. We will examine how once ubiquitous polytheistic traditions were consolidated and evolved into a modern monotheistic concept of The God.
