Comment 1 by david2 :

The desire to see suffering as punishment is very widespread, and many of those who have, apparently, abandoned religion apply the same moralized thinking nevertheless. All is innocence, but the love of finger-pointing is too great to leave behind.

Religions desire for 'presumptuous judgement' is born out of humans subjective moralities and is so deeply entrenched in many humans minds that many fail to loosen it even if they consider themselves to have left behind belief in religious myths. In this respect it demonstrates our emotions still deceive the mind whilst the mind considers it knows what it is doing.

Let us not forget that religions, and all that is in them, are born from human desires and emotions and so it is to be expected that some congruence remains is spite of as well as within them.
