Quiet an interesting piece of misconclusion.  Anyhow, could you tell me
what all
those ornaments used in Temples, Mosques, and Churches within India account
for?
While you are at it, you might want to explain acquisition of cattle, land,
and
farming.

By materialism I meant, "solution by the use of materials" -- as in
incorporation of technology, etc. The ornamentation of places of worship is
not materialism -- but spiritualism or organization/governance based on
religion. That the practices involves the copious use of materials does not
mean that materials were considered the solution; the solution was still
searched for in spirituality.
