to wonder how evolution shaped humans to believe in gods.


That's my question.  Perhaps there is some cognitive function that we
absolutely need to function properly that has the consequence, or side
effect, or extension, of believing in things without data or reason.

Speculation invited.   I am going to wade through the books of the Masks of
God, by Joseph Campbell, and see if he has some answers.
