Probably much longer than that, for all we know these traits have probably existed since man (and women) first walked the earth.

Just because there are no physical written records, doesn't mean this type of "thinking" didn't exist back then too.

It should be noted as well, that what people believe is often rooted in emotion, not logic.

I would think emotional drives come first, followed by cognition. Seems we're in an intermediary state with it still even though we think we are past it.

Could even go so far as to say that the same issues are exhibited in other species, too.
