May I pass on to you all the following link to an article
which refers to archeological disoveries at Göbekli Tepe in Turkey. Condensed, it says that the religious significance of the place, ca 10,000 BC, caused people to gather there and develop agriculture. Memory of the rigours of agriculture, and the resulting ecological crash, is preserved in the early chapters of Genesis.
There is nothing in this article which so much as smacks of "Creation Science" (ضرطة كبيرة عليه), but neither does it give ground to the "Concoctionism" which views the Biblical accounts as having been been "cooked up" to serve a purpose, or to the disastrous "Higher Criticism" that the Germans developed in the 19th century.
But does this mean, asks the Hedgehog, that the Fall of Man may have been brought about through religion?
