what r ur views on this...why do u think humans create god?
why humans create god?
The smartest man in the cave, had to give answers, why people were dying of natural causes, He looked up into the stars and a observe nature then saw how everything is connected, Then Religion came along separated us all, which was not such a bad thing at the time, yet later on mocked it up.
I think Gods have been created through out history because humanity is unable to face life without them. What do I mean this? As long as people have religion, they always have hope. They always look forward to something better, if not in this life then in the next. Without it, people would feel lost and wouldn't have anything to look forward to. People have an undeniable need to believe in something better in order to survive their hardships. Admitting that there aren't that many today as there was when it all started, a lot of people still need that belief. They believe their lives extremely hard when in fact, it's a lot easier than what it use to be.
Because, even in the beginning, the ancients could look up into the night sky and see how small they truly were when they imagined their place in the universe. Plus, before science, it was the only way to begin to find the answers to the questions we all ask. How did we get here? Why are we different?
hmmm..right...but we would keep creating new ones , i guess...what do u think?
No, not necessarily. The reason, imo, that we keep fine tuning the concept is because we are still searching for answers. Should we ever find them, we will stop and congregate where we find ourselves at that time.
If I was a Darwinian I might say that religious belief conveys an advantage- both on individuals and societies.
@will darwinian?...i never hear einsteinm or newtonim...darwin was scientist not religious head...yes impact of him is huge but i dont think dariwinian is right term for some one who has to do with facts...
There is an evolutionary advantage, and it is what neurologists have termed the hyperactive agency detection device, or HADD. Humans have a tendency to assign cause and effect relationships to events, even when there is no relationship. Conspiracy theories, faith healers, ufologists, and the paranormal explosion on cable TV are all products of HADD.
There is an evolutionary advantage, however - or at least there was back in our Rift Valley days.
Imagine you are an early hominid out hunting and gathering in the brush. Suddenly, you hear a rustle in the grass nearby. It might be a hungry lion or it might just be the wind. There is a strong selection pressure toward believing it is the lion and running versus believing it is the wind and being lunch.
As we settled down and formed agrarian societies, we were still hard-wired for HADD, and constructed agents to explain why the rains came sometimes but not others and to explain why the sun marched across the sky and why the river flooded. We made gods to explain these phenomena. Our gods then proved useful by commanding us to do other things we already wanted to do - take multiple wives, enslave inferior tribes, massacre neighboring villages and taking their land, etc.
Our HADD has us doing much the same thing today, only now it also brings us ghost hunters and ancient aliens.

A man see that which is in him thus he creates those things for the benefits of it for him self.
So it is with the smallest and so it is with the greatest...which is God that within him and caused him to be...
The problem begin not with the concept itself...for it is valid but with the fact that most are not yet able to separate the Smallest from the greatest.
Since neither appears to the outward senses, the human concept of the least intertwine itself with and thus invalidates the human concept of The Greatest (God).
So yes God created man and in turn Men will create a God to suite each individual taste.
There are quite a lot of theories about this. I think a lot of it was about answering questions and explaining the unknown. From a psychological point of view Freud thinks it is a type of neurosis which is perhaps a little harsh. I think it's also about human inability or refusal to accept that this is it- this is all there is to it. You have no purpose (other than what you make yourself) and when you die you are gone- most humans are too arrogant to accept this.
