Joseph Watts , "Did Fear In Supernatural Punishment Build Complex Societies?"


The concept of a Big God
:
- who actively monitors human behaviour and
- punishes immoral actions,
- is a major feature of these religions and
- might explain their success.

It is suggested that belief in supernatural punishment

- for antisocial behaviour,
- especially supernatural punishment by Big Gods,
- makes people more cooperative and,
- historically, helped humans to build large, complex societies.
