I suggest it is only because humans are so unruly, angry, and judgmental of each other, that so many are willing to place faith in the existence of a “judge-mental” god. As the Roman historian Polybius once said, “Since the masses of the people are inconstant, full of unruly desires, passionate, and reckless of consequences, they must be filled with fears to keep them in order. The ancients did well, therefore, to invent gods, and the belief in punishment after death.”
