Some( I guess most) people feel a need to worship something. There have many gods invented over the history of human existence, usually invented to give reason to things that can't be explained. As human knowledge grows, more things can be explained so less gods are needed. It amazes me that so many people today still attribute everything they see to the god of their choice. So much bitterness, death and destruction because my god is better than your god. The only reason today to believe in any god is the natural fear of death. The promise that if you believe in this or that god you will live forever is the greatest scam ever invented. The sad part is that so many people are so intent on the next life they don't really live this one. This is all there is folks, make the best of it.
