    Animism (from Latin: anima, 'breath, spirit, life') is the belief that objects, places, and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence. Potentially, animism perceives all things—animals, plants, rocks, rivers, weather systems, human handiwork, . The upshot is that the religious thinking of earliest man is believed to be preserved among "primitive" tribes scattered to the wastelands of several continents. And that belief turns out to be monotheism, that is faith or awareness of one Supreme God who is morally good and who calls His people to a strict morality.

      Pettazzoni observed how there was the concept of a supreme being among historical societies and contended that singular deities were believed in by the earliest historical peoples. However, unlike the scholar by the name Wilhelm Schmidt (), Pettazzoni did not wish to argue for an original monotheism or, as Schmidt did, for a Primordial. Monotheism: Its Influence on Patriarchy and Misogyny the belief among prehistoric people that all things, both living and inanimate, are inhabited by spirit. In the animist worldview, not just humans, but animals and plants, rivers and mountains, even stories all contain what might be called a soul.1 In his book, Primitive Culture, Tylor.

    Many anthropologists dispute the origin and purpose of the concept of God amongst the Aborigines. They doubt that the Australian High Gods*, is the same as the Supreme Being known elsewhere among traditional religions, because it is difficult for them to believe that savages or inferior people, as the primitive Australians were, could hold such advanced conceptions.   Primitive animism was thought to be the earliest evolutionary stage and monotheism the most sophisticated and advanced. This theory was posited most vividly by English anthropologist Sir Edward Burnett Tylor in his two-volume book Primitive Culture well known for his anthropological and linguistic work among primitive peoples.
