Less Wrong: Religion's Claim to be Non-Disprovable

I was reading Religion's Claim to be Non-Disprovable when it hit how much religion is simply the form that (almost) all cultural transmission (i.e. spread of ideas, songs, pottery, etc.) took throughout much of human history.
There simply wasn't anything like law, or history, or biology for a long time.
Religion was it. It was everything.
