The law based religion of these periods are based upon 'historic' evidence.
We have no evidence within the Neolithic nor do we have any written evidence that this wasn't the case. We do however have evidence that somone/somebodies had enough power capable of enducing a similar comparity upon the people as to construct fantastical structures, well beyond their physical means!
The force to build was more than self awareness, it was forced upon them!
