A just-so story about the origin of religious beliefs 

Given the evidence of the eonic effect (with its subsection on the Axial Age) we can see that even religions show a relationship to some mysterious source, invoking somewhat cautiously the idea of finetuning…The latter idea won’t convince at first…
we don’t need the idea of fine-tuning as such: it merely creates one possible connection with physics.
Study the idea of the ‘eonic evolution’ of civilization. Then look at the eonic effect with respect to emergent religions…The darwinian theory of evolution is completely hopeless here…
