In my opinion the cow was seen as so sacred a creature because of what grew in its scat, Magic Mushrooms.  I know a lot of people of ancient times held the cow as basically a god, and thought high of it.

So what do you guys think, could it be as simple as I'm thinking or is there more to it?

Mushrooms generally grow out of cow dung because the cow consumes the spores of these mushrooms while grazing, the spores survive the digestion and are deposited in the scat. Cow dung is also used as a fertilizer.  I know they grow in the cow poop because Iv seen them growing in cow poop. But the ancients were sure to have seen these mushrooms growing, and most likely TRIED them.  Once they figured out the powers these mushrooms had on the brain I guarantee you they would wanna do it again

I don't think it has anything to do with psychedelic mushrooms.  Cows provide an awful lot to India's people without being slaughtered for food.  They give milk products and their dung is used for fuel.

Well, never knew that about magic mushrooms!!

Hindus consider cows deities cause they act as our 'surrogate' mothers by feeding us with their milk (cow's gestational period is practically the same as humans).

Only the bulls are revered, because they are viewed as one of the most powerful animals on the planet, it's about strength, not magic mushrooms.

I personally don't worship something because of strength, I think it is just too primitive.

The poor do.  They dry it and burn the dried patties to cook their food.  I am of course talking about fuel in the sense of cooking, not driving a car.  The poor have no cars.

Though apparently the psychodelic mushrooms are found world wide, there is no scientific note of them in the old world till around 1800. I've also not heard of any old world religion or ceremony that uses mushrooms. So, IMHO, I think that the idea has very little merit to it. These mushrooms will grow in just about anything, but they are grown in cow dung today, because the dung is practically free, while comparable store bought growing medium would cost a couple dollars a pound.

Most European cattle religions were formed when there were still Aurochs roaming Europe, which were much larger and stronger (Aguably the largest/strongest species in Europe) then any other form of cattle.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

That is still a "maybe". If various religions were based on it, we'd expect much wider evidence of usage.
