I suspect that all "humankind" generalisations for the period including,
and subsequent to, the neolithic revolution depend on a lack of
perspective, that is, on an inclination to re-interpret the data according
to one's own biases and not to the relevant cultural context, so that even
the "god" concept is too easily applied to vastly different representations.
