|monotheism||world||-2500 B.C.E.||Stephenson, Neal. Snow Crash. New York: Bantam (1992); pg. 213.|| "'I thought the Hebrews were monotheists. How could they worship Asherah?'
'Monolatrists. They did not deny the existence of other gods. But they were only supposed to worship Yahweh. Ashereah was venerated as the consort of Yahweh.'
'I don't remember anything about God having a wife in the Bible.'
'The Bible didn't exist at that point. Judaism was just a loose collection of Yahwistic culsts, each with different shrines and practices. The stories about the Exodus hadn't been formalized into scripture yet. And the later parts of the Bible had not yet happened.' "

New York: Tor (2000); pg. 147.|| "Of course, it's possible to enjoy the traditions of religion--the ceremonies, the ties with the past--without believing in God... But, in fact, there are millions of Jews who believe--really believe--in God (or G-d); indeed, secular Zionist Judaism was on the wane while formal observance was rising. And there are millions of Christians who believe in the holy threefer of, as one of my Catholic friends occasionally quipped, Big Daddy, Junior, and the Spook. And there are millions of Muslims who embraced the Qur'an as the revealed word of God.
Indeed, even here, at the dawn of the century following the one in which we'd discovered DNA and quantum physics and nuclear fission and in which we'd invented computers... ninety-six percent of the world's population still really believed in a supreme being--and the percentage was rising, not falling. "
|monotheism||world||2025||Stephenson, Neal. Snow Crash. New York: Bantam (1992); pg. 374.||"'In any case, this is the birth of a rational religion. All of the subsequent monotheistic religions--known by Muslims, appropriately, as religions of the Book--incorporated those ideas to some extent. For example, the Koran states over and over again that it is a transcript, an exact copy, of a book in Heaven. Naturally, anyone wh believes that will not dare to alter the text in any way! Ideas such as these were so effective in preventing the spread of Asherah that, eventually, ever square inch of territory where the viral cult had once thrived--from India to Spain--was under the sway of Islam, Christianity, or Judaism.'

Monotheism is a belief system that you see appearing in early herding societies. The greater their dependence on sheep herding, the more likely their belief in a shepherd god. It's an exact correlation, you can chart it and see. And the god is always male, because those societies were patriarchal. There's a kind of archeology, an anthropology--a sociology of religion, that makes all of this perfectly clear--how it came about, what needs it fulfilled.'
