Perhaps because we 'anthropomorphize' God (meaning when we perceive God in a human image) that confuses the nature of His existence as the belief that God is the 'spark' that created all that is. Scientists theorize that even the Big Bang Theory which explains the creation of our known Universe must have had a 'spark' that started it all.
Was this 'spark' what all cultures in the world refer to as God?
Atheists say that religion is constructed to meet deep psychological needs.
If we turn the tables it appears that atheism's vested interest is in rejecting God or the 'faith in the unknown' altogether. The issue is not as much moral as it is intellectual.
Does mankind suppress the belief about God's existence deeming our reason of being here as accidental so that we can live with unbounded moral and sexual freedom?
My hands are tied on this one..
