My thoughts on the Evolution of Religion: from Animism to Paganism
Damien Marie AtHope Blog

Damien Marie AtHope’s Art To me, Animism starts in Southern Africa, then to West Europe, and becomes Totemism. Another split goes near the Russia and Siberia border becoming Shamanism, which heads into Central Europe meeting up with Totemism, which also had moved there, mixing the two which then heads to Lake Baikal in Siberia. From there this Shamanism-Totemism heads to Turkey where it becomes Paganism.

Sometime later… Along came a ‘priest’ and told him what to think.” My response, The Drunken Monkey hypothesis (Ps.
