The question becomes (for me at least) would God make Himself manifest to the little monkey-boy so that the monkey-boy could have a foundation.

When children are raised by wild animals(of which there are admittedly very few reports) they often prtray certain human characteristics that make them stand out in behavior from their "family." These include attachement, defensiveness, and unthwartable curiosity. It doesn't matter if the animals themselves are usually solitary creatures;the human children are right by their"parent's" side. We need someone to take care of us. Perhaps we would grow up thinking a chmp that raised us was God, or some divine entity, but it is certain in my mind that we would have something we worshipped. Perhaps simply staring at the stars at night and feeling moved at the grandeur of it all would drive us to find some explanation. But the human mind IS more advanced than the chimp, so we wouldn't be limited to what we saw. We have imagination, and that's our greatest gift, I think. That's what allows us to believe in something greater than ourself.
