We have come up with many different ways to fill that hole, with many gods or just one, with gods of hunting, gods of farming, gods of war and gods of sea and sky." The series begins with Professor Winston examining the religions which believe in many different gods and explores why mankind started to believe in God at all. The answer to that question, says Professor Winston, can be found in the caves where our ancestors first approached their gods and in the fields where people still call on them for help, in the cities where our ancestors have been honoured and in the temples where the gods have been appeased with sacrifices. "But most of all the answer," says Professor Winston, "lies in the human desire to be united with something bigger than ourselves."
