Jews, Judaism, and the Origins of Some of its Ideas

Animism, Totemism, Shamanism, and Paganism? Interconnectedness of religious thinking Animism, Totemism, Shamanism, and Paganism So, it all starts in a general way with Animism (theoretical belief in supernatural powers/spirits), then this is physically expressed in or with Totemism (theoretical belief in mythical relationship with powers/spirits through a totem item), which then enlists a full time specific person to do this worship and believed interacting Shamanism (theoretical belief in access and influence with spirits through ritual), and then there is the further employing of myths and gods added to all the above giving you Paganism (often a lot more nature based than most current top world religions, thus hinting to their close link to more ancient religious thinking it stems from). My hypothesis is expressed with an explanation of the building of a theatrical house (modern religions development).

Hating our beneficial emotional lives as if we do not live by feeling emotions and in fact if they were so removed we actually wouldn’t have much depth or quality in life as we do now, which we seem to currently seek so desperately all the while loathing it with a wrongly learned shame. Humble defenders of reality long may we think clearly, steadfast we hold to the esteemed of being truth’s champion and untruth’s most feared adversary. A truth seeker doesn’t dirty their thinking on the folly of faith, which is but a respite of a dishonest mind that after realizing there was no proof or evidence of any kind, still wishes belief anyway. Oh, wayward traveler of bad beliefs, don’t let the straightjacket of faith trap you in unreason. This mind trap of faith beliefs is a madman’s twisted misstep of the intellectually dishonest.
