[. . .] Man is naturally capable according to the thought of Aristotle to find upon seeking God and upon man's discovery of God the Creator is bound in worship and adoration. Without the discovery of God, man lives in a state of imperfection and in a state of wandering endlessly without reason or rhyme for living and has no manner of knowing whether he is living in a positive or negative manner.

While men will in their first philosophy attain different levels of wisdom and knowing that can in no way be held as universality the ultimate discovery of man in first philosophy is that of a higher or supreme and knowing being referred to in religions as God. Through the discovery of God by man, theology naturally develops thereby enabling the spread of various religions and cultures adhere to specific religious thought.
