If someone asked why a so "universal" need of God?

well, jesuit priests in the XVI century reported about tupian brasilian indians that they seemed to have no god, no faith, to fear no god nor demon, they seemed to have no cult nor religion at all for they thought it would be easy to indoctrinate them, but it wasn´t.

But even africans think that chimps were humans that went to live in the forest, they don´t go mad with the religious idea of human perfection.

People need to think better about the notion "universal".
