Holy Cows and 72 Virgins

Religious leaders have tried to guide men into the spiritual world and away from raw instinct since the beginnings of our species. Their efforts have advanced civilizations on a global basis.

Hunger is a natural instinct. In India, long ago, adults slaughtered cattle for their meat as soon as they could. This became a major problem, because Hindus relied on dairy products in their diet and for tilling the fields, and on cow dung as a source of fuel and fertilizer.

Holy men had a solution. They simply made the cow a “holy” being, which protected them from slaughter.
