“We don’t HAVE a soul. We ARE a soul. We just happen to have a body.” C.S. Lewis
Most of today’s problems can be linked to the idea that humanity is a body with a soul as just a guest, or that maybe we are all body, and what we call soul is really our brain. Medicine treats body parts instead of the soul, when sometimes all a sick soul needs is a hug. Suicides are up. Drug addiction is soaring, and now we believe that with the right algorithm, machines can become people. Our souls are screaming for acknowledgement. We need to get back to basics.

Native American Religions
There were over 100 Native American Religions, though they were more like denominations of one basic religion rather than different religions. What they had in common was that there was no written text. Perhaps by studying Native American religions we can gain insight into what Judaism was like before it had a written text, and what Christianity was like for the mainly illiterate early Christians.
