Religion implies thoughts and behaviors. According to Evolutionary (Darwinian) Psychology, all human behaviors or thoughts are products of neural (or neuroendocrine) functions in conjunction with inputs that trigger these functions: No function, no behavior or thought; no input, no behavior or thought. In this book, the Author searches for the origin of theism (considered a basic feature of religion) in early humans, using data from various sciences, such as neurobiology, ethology, physical anthropology, and cognitive psychology. For what concern the genesis of the ideas of such immense power beings, the Author is in agreement with scholars as Freud or Morris that such beings could have been the projection result of the figure of dominant males Primates, especially of Single Male breeding groups. However, human beings that did such a projection had to possess a brain fit to do it (a brain endowed with a fourth or fifth level of intentionality). But it is easy to observe, in studies of scholars engaged in human social evolution, inferred from studies on sexual dimorphism, that when human ancestors attained the necessary brain capacity, there was not in their groups the figure of the absolute dominant male.
