Historical materialism: can it deal with the complexity of world religions since the Neolithic? (and before)

We have been posting mostly on the issue of religions and the Neolithic today over at The Gurdjieff Con. His claims about ‘presand Egypt’ force a reckoning of the Neolithic and of the confused world of Gurjieff sufism. The legacy of religion is very hard to study and decipher and I think that historical materialism is not going to help. The larger matrix of the ‘eonic or macro’ effect is a useful way to block out the progression of civilizations. There is no real theory behind this, simply an empirical discovery of clustering discontinuities that represent transitions. The emergence of human civilization is very complex and it is time to move beyond economic fundamentalism.
