Answer: The worship of someone or something always exists in our world and determines the difference between the degrees we place people on. We define gradations as better, worse, more beautiful, stronger, and so on.
Idolatry is a completely different attitude to various phenomena of nature when I attribute some special qualities to them.
Moreover, I endow them with my own or contrived qualities because it’s better and more convenient for me. In this way I build myself a more connected picture of the world around me.
