Did Man create God. If yes then Why.
God meaning God, Allah, etc
God, Allah, call him what you like, but we are in fact all part of this one creator ourselves.
All conciousness is one, therefore we are all a part of that which is God, as he is as much a part of us.
Therefore, man did not create God in the way that you mean, although man did manipulate peoples beliefs about God, into living in accordance with how they claim God says you should live.
People are discovering their own belief systems more these days & this was historically a method of control of the masses, nothing more.
God created man in his own image. Therefore God is a monkey.
probably - blaming bad events on a god was really useful to emerging tribes & then kingdoms; oncee priests got invented, they had a vested interest in keeping the tithes comig in.
there's also the benefit that beleving in a god eliminates the need to face the insignificance and ultimate meaninglessness of life
Men create gods. Or, to be more accurate - educated, literate men create gods (in their own interests - not image). In the ancient Nile delta the priest kings were able to predict when the waters of the Nile would rise because they could write which enabled them to keep records. They observed the positions of certain stars (Sirius: the house of bread, being the most important) and used them as a calender to work out when to plant their staple crops. The poor illiterate peasants thought that the priest kings had the power of prophecy: which had been bestowed upon them by the gods in the sky (which was - in a sense - true), and so submitted to their rule.
All religions began this way. Knowledge is power; power corrupts (ergo - all religions are corrupt).
The rest is history.
Amen (did you know this was the name of an Egyptian god?)
Ego corrupts, not God or religion. Ego is the poison and source of evil. Religion is the cure. Humility the antidote. The problem is that we need to distinguish between religion infested with ego and religion full of the spirit. Big difference
There has to be a number one.so everthing else can follow .. order of packs
Man has created lots of gods - in fact, I have just such a god doing the hula on the dashboard of my car when I drive. I saw another god in a painting, and then there are all sorts of gods on crosses hanging from necks.
If instead of creating you are asking whether man came up with the concept of an immaterial, spiritual being then the answer is still in the affirmative, as something (or someone) who has no substance cannot mediate as a cause for an effect, meaning that this mystery being would have no way of interacting with the physical world and would be nothing more than a vacuum, empty space.
Man conceptualizes space; therefore, man must conceptualize an immaterial, disembodied god; however, man definately creates the hula god on dashboards.
So, yes, man definately creates god out of paint, plastic, wood, or metals, and the reason is to sell god at the gift shop for a profit.
Humans have developed many different conceptions of God. And no matter what you believe, you are forced to conclude that the overwhelming majority of religious ideas that are out there were created by human beings. All conceptions of God cannot be true because they often contradict one another. If one belief system is true, then everything else is false. And if the atheists are right, of course, then all conceptions of God are a delusion. So there is no doubt that human beings have an incredible capacity for conjuring up gods, spirits, and other supernatural forces. What is fascinating, however, is the number of people who are convinced that they are a part of a small minority whose beliefs are not a delusion.

Well I tried to give you a 1 word answer but it was rejected. Here is the answer. No. and you only asked "Why" if the answer was yes so I will stick with the simple truth of "No"
No, man did not create God. Quite the opposite.
God is the owner of this universe. He wants His children to re-awaken from their long slumber. Too many of them have come to think that they are the bodies they wear, and they can only remember what resides in their bodies' brains. They have forgotten how to see without physical instrumentalities.
God is devoid of space-time and energy-mass, but remains the source of all these. He is the element that makes the equation possible -- the paper, the ink, the energy with which to view, the space within which to exist and the time within which to persist.

Why did god create humans?Does he want to be prayed and loved? If yes then why call him god? Wants and needs are human attributes.

There are so many religions in the world and yet there are those who believe in nothing but themselfs, and yet those that believe in God live as though they dont believe , just by the way they live, and the things they say! when really they want others to believe in them and give there word...
