You say "It implies that organized religion corrupted humanity"
I don't believe it... and I don't think you have given much or any? evidence of that from an archeological/anthopological/sociobiological/historical perspective.
Atavistic mankind naturally held opinions which would be considered proto-religious by today's standards. They also had dominance hierarchies.
There is significant evidence that early humans were episodically violent, more likely for turf t than for theology or philosophy.

I remember some earlier exchanges when I defined
What I meant by God and you said you could not find a definition of God there. Now you are saying you don't object to an amorphous definition. But that is an oxymoron.
If you want to insist you were not referring to Christ in your "Hank" post, who is anyone to dispute what you say you meant.
But like you say to Sam above, you might go out on a limb and tell us what the heck else you do mean.
