The answer to that question is you don't have evidence, except the popularity of the belief in primacy of religion. For all we know, it could have been some atheist cave man who wrote down the Ten Commandments and left them on some mountain. Or, there could have been prehistoric societies using non-religious, oral laws. We just don't know.
And your doing the exact same thing xD

I'm tough, rough, ready and able
To pick myself up from under this table
Don't stick no sign on me, I got no label
I'm a little sick, unsure, unsound and unstable

But I'm fighting my way back
