It has been very much perplexing to me if relegion is the product of human interactions or human interactions are modified in accordance with the dictates of relegion.
A good but lively discussions.
I'm leaning towards the biology of religion, belief, or spirituality. I think we have that impulse to believe that there's someone up there more powerful than us. I observe that in many cultures where the name of god becomes an instant expression when something bad or good happens. Here in the US, they use "Jesus!" or "Oh! My God" for grief or joy and dismay or disbelief. In my culture, we use susmaryosep! for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph when there's an accident, bad news, or unbelievable incident. I think our minds are wired to find reasons to explain our misery or comfort and success or failure. If we can't find one, we make one.
