'Pagan' gods? That qualification basically rules out any gods the reader
happens to believe in, making the whole sentence meaningless (and
perpetuating religious arguments: "your belief in /your/ gods are
explainable by evolution. Mine are still real, though"). I'd say the
agency-attribution tendency explains religion in general. If we didn't
have it (and managed to survive), religion wouldn't be a thing, and gods
would never have been conceived of at all.
