I have not seen anything in any holly book including (Bible & Quran) that bears any evidence of a super being’s writing , secretes of the universe or even a plausible reason for creation, other then things like worship me for I am your lord (medieval kings like attitudes) … I am not saying that there is no creator or GOD of laws, but religion what’s up with religion/s? And why would GOD even create religions when he can just give us a self judging ever evolving brain?

Inadequate parenting.

A person who's not prepared, emotionally and psychologically, to be independent in the world is going to need something to be dependent on. Since mom and dad don't want this kid living with them forever, he falls back on the next best thing: an abstraction of mom and dad, complete with punishments if your bad, rewards if your good, and someone to make sure "everything will be alright."
