As mankind has progressed throughout history his idea of god has changed with his domination of nature and natures elements When man made the transition from a Paleolithic to a Neolithic lifestyle his mastery of nature attained a higher level because of the bow and arrow With the bow and arrow man could now control animals because the bow became an extremely efficient way of dealing with animals before they could come close enough to kill The gods of the Paleolithic tribesmen and even gods of the first primitive civilizations were animals As mankind mastered the animals however his idea of god changed to become people as is showed in the Greek and Roman myths These gods however lived on earth and were accustomed to the same pleasures and desires and led the same lifestyle as the Greeks and Romans First proposed by the Hebrew prophet Isaiah god became a higher being as mankind had mastered something within themselves to have a need for a higher god This first god was still immoral and like the humans except that he could live forever and did not dwell on the same surface as the humans but god still lived in heaven which was thought of as a tangible place in the sky and still was thought to be in the shape of a man This idea was challenged by another Hebrew prophet Jeremiah He was the first to convey the message that god was holy apart from the world and did not meddle in mortals lives This change was brought about by the change in morality by the monotheistic Hebrews With the ascension of Davids son Soloman to the throne the Hebrews became a very moral people After the Hebrews had mastered temptation and sin their god could not be an immoral being The change in that god did not care about his people and was above them was brought about because the Assyrians destroyed Israel
