Contrary to popular belief, the concept of “religion” came well before Homo sapiens. In fact, the idea of religion began in the Cambrian period. It was hotly discussed and debated between virtually every single species, but one order in particular was famous for actually saying, “there might be a god, there might not be a god. We can’t know for sure.” This order was Agnostida. Their name was given to them specifically because of the philosophy they’ve contributed to history. Agnostida were primarily shunned by their peers, who were typically very set on their beliefs. Common responses to their spiritual questionings were, “How could you be so unsure of yourself?” and “Just pick a side. It isn’t hard.” However, Agnostida refused to “pick a side,” arguing that that isn’t how you have a proper discussion on such issues. Their legacy is continued today by modern-day agnostics.
It is both false and arrogant to assume that humans are the only species with any concept of religion. If you’re curious about Agnostida literature, please visit religionforarthropods.org.
