Man's Need To Anthropomorphize
I firmly believe that the the reason people believe in God is man's inborn desire to anthropomorphize everything. We want to put a human face on everything and relate to everything as if it's a member of our family. If we have pets, we see them as our children, often referring to ourselves as a dog or cat's "mommy" or "daddy".On instructions to things we put faces on inanimate objects to make a point. Instructions to care for your VCR tapes can show pictures of a VHS tape lying in the rear window of a car with a sweaty human face, it's just our nature to personify.
