← India: atheism in the land of a thousand gods

Vicktor's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by Vicktor

I think the human propensity to worship gods, other people, animals, trees, stars etc. merits further investigation. Why, exactly, do most people believe that worshiping helps and that not doing so incurs wrath? Even faking it, many times, is apparently good enough - the important thing is that you do it all the same and be seen by others doing it. Are there any good books on the subject?
