What is it in human mind that it needs to have a belief. It wants to be satiated with answers about his special place in the Universe, the meaning of its existence and the death will not be the final rest. Once that belief sets in it roots itself in the subconscious and moulds the complete identity of the individual. No one can argue or convince the person over a belief, neither the morality of a belief can be defined with perfect rationality.

What about your own sense of reasoning? Isn't it capable of judging right from wrong? Why we need to have an outer source as the judge and the divine reward is the only incentive to do the right thing?
Without belief too people do moral deeds.
Totally agree with the former but what I was wondering was why do we need to believe in something as absolute, why doesn't out brain questions itself once it settles on a belief?
