I think the need to create a fantasy being to reflect ones life, fears, hopes, etc shows a scared, and immature mind, incapable of grasping the reality of the universe.

The fact gods are created in the image of man, or what ever man sees around him, is evidence of this. The European Jesus is blond haired and blue eyed. The asian one looks Jewish.

The Romans had a god of hunting, a god of drink, a god of war, of love, of every facet of mans experience.

The only advanced religion that goes beyond this laughable state is Buddhism. It at least doesn't try to define god as it is beyond man's ability to understand. It limits itself to defining a way of life, a way of thinking, to make life easier. And is quite good psychology in fact.


As for Islam. Well, no one needs to bother exposing it's insanity.
