It baffles me how ancient people were able to come up with such detailed stories, characters, myths, rituals, etc. It’s one thing to look at lighting and assumes a god is controlling it, it’s another thing to come up with that god’s entire life story and an entire pantheon with hundreds of gods interacting with one another. How were the ancient people able to come up with such claims without any shred of evidence? Even modern day writers struggle to come up with such detailed and complex stories. Can someone explain to me how myths, religions came to be and how the ancient people were able to come up with all of that and how it became popular and why the people at the time believe such insane claims without questioning them?
