taken from Romans 1:20 of the Holy Scriptures
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

of course it's a primative way of thinking. before science took off the only explanation for everything was god. 5,000 years ago there was no such thing as evolution, science and theory of relativity. the only way anyone could explain why we lived and why we died was to create the concept of god or gods. the concept was actually created around 30,000 years ago, and that the god or gods were actually female.
however, since the science age has taken off many people have opened their minds to new concepts of why we are here. the egyptians and acient greeks, two of the most powerful civilisations to ever live also had gods. however, where are those egyptian and ancient greek gods now? that's right, they're gone. they are laughed away as will the jewish god, the hindu gods, the christian god and any other god within the next 500 to 1000 years. there is no place in the future for religion, and the monotonous religious people know this, which is why they are so deperate to recruit people, hence coming to your own door to get you to come to church!
well that's what i have to say, i welcome you religious people to shout me down and tell me some more bulls**t about god being all loving, real and you having a personal relationship with him.

Belief in god is something that is taught, not something that is an instinct.
I just asked my 3 year old daughter "Is there such thing as god?"
Her answer, a firm and resounding NO
I didn't teach her that, its her built in instinct, fortified by my not lying to her about
Easter Bunnies, Santa Claus' etc for the past three years.
From the mouths of babes.
Now go ask some kid who has been taught lies from birth..I bet they believe in tooth fairies..and god.

Oh, come on. Someone had to dream up god in the first place, not have it taught to them. If we erased all forms of religion and any thoughts of god from everyone's brain right now, what will happen?

The first icon or Idol to be worshiped by the ancient was the sun, it was due to the fact that people saw the sun with his warming rays as a giver.
Ancient man could not understand darkness they new that is was dangerous, but when the big yellow orbit came with the new day, it was hope and light.
That was the first think the ancients worshiped.
