So many of these simplistic questions beg simplistic answers and there aren't any simplistic answers.


I tend to think that there are, and most of the answers are "No":

Do we need gods to explain consciousness: No.
Do we need god as a "necessary being" to explain creation: No.
Do we need god to explain the origin of life: No.
Do we need god to explain how complex life appeared: No.
Do we need god to explain why people feel in contact with god: No.
