a relationship with the divine existed long before writing.
a relationship with the divine existed long before books and texts and hieroglyphs for that matter.
a relationship with the divine existed long before hebrews walked the earth.
God's will and our spiritual relationship with God and each other did not just all of a sudden begin once humans started communicating by the means called writing.
There are humans in existence today that are not "in the dark" about spirituality or lacking a relationship or an overstanding about the Creator just because they cannot read or write or were not exposed to missionaries/converters who could.
Again, I still ask for examples/evidence of a culture that was enhanced/improved by holy-writ.
Reading anything further into my statements is unnecessary. I have made what I consider a straightforward point.
