I think for many, the idea is that there is a supreme being who by his very nature is greater than one's self, as the center and the source or the
first/last cause in creation, making of the human being a "child" of God. Being made in the image of God is a metaphor for the shared property of
self-conscious awareness. There is so much misunderstanding, and willful ingorance on the part of atheists as to what believers believe and
why, and I'm not referring here to the blind faith of literalist-fundamentalist conservative evangelicals either.
Willful ingorance on the part of atheists? When atheists research and logically pick apart all the flaws in the bible, the only responses (though they
may be flowered with many more words) from those of faith are:
"JUST BELIEVE IT!"
"I don't care if it doesn't make sense, I just believe it."
"You're going to hell if you don't believe it."
"Two billion of us believe it, and that proves we are right."
"God loves you even if you don't love him."
None of these statements offer any fact-based reason to believe.
The chimps in the video SAW the alpha male physically displaying his power. They have more reason and evidence to believe in the alpha male than all
of the religious (and supposedly intelligent) fanatics believing in a god.
