I think about the "God" question alot. Ive come to believe that the idea of God is a manmade thing for the sole purpose of comfort. Its difficult for us to believe we are at the mercy of this unforgiving life and therefore must put a bigger purpose behind it all. Humans are frail and scared about death and suffering and find it hard to accept that we have to endure it all by ourselves. This is why we create mythological father figures to watch over us.
