a belief in god I agree isnt necessarily silly at all. Its more so mans impatience combine with his ability to fill in the blanks with this complex
thing he has called an imagination. That is but one possiblity.
Its shown time and time again that if a person is given a certain amount of information, in time, either the information they never had, or
information they forgot, will be filled in like blanks. Think about this phrase:
When my grandmother got old, she died and passed on her house, her shoes, her clothes and her bank account money to my aunt, my sister, and my mom
evenly. I got the dog and the parrot she kept with her for the last 2 years of her life.
Now if this were a personal experience for you, over time, chance are you will forget some of this information. You will most likely fill in the
blanks. You probably remember the most important parts, but the point is, that a majority of the time people fill in the blanks when confronted with
This could be true with god. We saw things happen, we knew there was a cause, but we had no answer. We didn't just go "lets make something up to
explain this" we jumped to conclusions, because its in our nature to. We saw the lightning hit the tree and wondered why. We couldnt explain it and
thought "well some one must have caused that" After discarding the idea they had any influence, we considered it doesnt just happen all the time,
that clouds seem to come everytime, it must be associated with the clouds. But what is the clouds? Well it never touches the ground, it is high above
what man can reach. So much higher that its greater then man, and whatever is up there is above all men.
rough idea of why man is created by god, the ruler of the heavens. The most destructive and powerful force known to man has always been from weather,
and as they saw it, the weather came from above. The rains which flood the lands came from the clouds. Hurricanes, tornadoes, they all come from the
clouds and sky. So obviously whatever is up there is superior to man. From there its pretty simple that one could jump to the conclusion that its just
a superior being to them, that is above them. Random just wasnt acceptable, so something had to be deciding what would happen.
