They didn't have the knowledge to explain certain things, so they filled that gap in knowledge with magic (aka "god(s)"). It's basically "god of
the gaps" spread out over billions of people
Think about it: They said god causes plagues...because they didn't understand medicine. They also claimed comets were a sign of god...which we now
know is wrong too. They came up with stories like Adam & Eve...because they didn't have the knowledge (and capabilities to find out about) evolution.
