@pcruztemp, Thanks for pointing out other possible explanations of the origin of the God concept. The one i posted above, is just my opinion and certainly not official. Its interesting that you also pointed this out: This is just one of my conjectures: Causality is one of the basic observable law that complex biological organism can easily detect. In fact behavior is heavily influence by causality. If an act is executed and can result on a gratifying feedback it is likely to be remembered by an organism, therefore likely repeating such an act in the future, if an act resulted on a undesirable feedback it is likely to be avoided in the future, therefore forming a certain behavior. this is a behavior-forming mechanism. an organism most adept in remembering good feedbacks was likely to survive than others, passing on his genes to his offspring. Thus causality influenced the evolution & behavior of many organism today. When humans arrived in the world scene, we inherited such gene & behavior. This cause-&-effect gauging behavior eventually led to the awareness of causality which ultimately perhaps led to the concept of Gods.
