"What is it called . . ."  Wrong most likely.  Because at some point your 
understanding of humans should make it obvious why we have such beliefs.

We might be as little as 5 years or perhaps even less from understanding 
where, why and how such feelings arise.  There is a *lot* of money being 
spend on autism and I suspect from what Tooby and Boyer said last week that 
the path to understanding autism will also give us an answer to why humans 
have religions at all.

Strange as this might be . . .
