When the Celts were prevalent in Europe, they knew of energy beings who managed various parts of nature. This was around 2,500 to 3,000 years ago. By the time the Greeks were big, they visualized those energy beings as gods with human-like traits and personalities. They wrote stories (myths) about the energy beings that reflect the Greek beliefs about the gods. No need to discuss the Romans, because they just copied the Greeks. Many cultures, past and present, around the world have identified and believed in, may still believe in these energy beings.
Around 2,500 years ago, the Hebrews decided to worship one god above all others. They basically chose to ignore all the other energy beings in the world. Even their Torah says this. The Muslims and Christians followed suit. The thing is, just ignoring them doesn't make them go away. The energy beings who work with nature are still there. Most people don't even know they exist.
To make things more interesting, scientists still cannot measure consciousness. That means they have no way to determine if energy beings exist, so scientists tend to deny anything they can't measure. String theory does identify dimensions which are purely energy, not physical. So these energy beings live in the energy dimensions. Again, scientists can't measure them.
So, think about it. If energy beings exist who manage natural processes, and they are immortal, they didn't go away, then they are still around managing Earth's natural processes. Shouldn't we acknowledge them? What would they say about the state of the Earth today?
