A thought on thought

I think in words. Often I have conversations in my head as if I'm talking to someone else. This helps me prepare ideas and thoughts before sharing them.

So today I had a thought; how did primitive man think before language was developed?

And once language was invented, who did early man think was thinking in his head? Could this have been mistaken for god? How did he think before language?

What if conversations in one's early primal mind were thought to be from god? Could this cause someone to think god is telling him to kill his child? Or cut off his foreskin?

Early man, especially man who came into contact with language at a later age, could easily have been fooled into thinking the ideas in his head were a deity speaking to him. I guarantee early man could have thought it because I've heard modern day people say god speaks to them that way…

I'll bet the invention of language was the direct link to the invention of god…

Now off to google it.

And to talk to myself about it…
