The evolutionary origin of religions refers to the emergence of religious behavior during the course of human evolution. When humans first became religious remains unknown, but there is credible evidence of religious behavior from the Middle Paleolithic era (300-50 thousand years ago) and possibly earlier. The exact origin of religion remains a mystery and is subject to much debate.
