I heard a quote years ago. Quote: "If there were no god, then man would invent one".
I think there's something like "god gene" in our DNA that makes us always seek a divine being who people think can take care of them it's hard-wired into us. People are actually quite smart and the concept of a "supreme being" goes back at least as far as ancient Egypt in 2000 b.c. Religious people are not all blindly and unconscious believing in god. Everybody knows that there are people who think that other people are foolish for believing including the people who believe. But you will never stamp out the belief of a higher power, it's ingrained in us.I'm sorry if I came on too strong, I didn't mean to, I was making a point.
