History shows that man has made many gods and godesses.
God making appears to be part of the human psyche.
And man has been prolific in exercising this trait. All recorded civilisations appear to have created a god or gods.
In this series of videos I seek to find out why this is.
I am grateful to Andy Thomson for giving me the opportunity of discussing this issue (and his book).
