Theistfags, don't answer. I already know your side of the story.

Athiests, AA theory believers, any ideas;thoughts?

I know, that's obvious. But what drove them to think it was an omniscient being?
That's what perplexes me

It's the simplest answer. I guess it does seem logical when you don't have modern technology; they couldn't explain many things. Organised religion spread because of powerful people and because of the lack of other explanations, but I don't know very much religious history, so my last statement can't be validated, and I know that I could be wrong.

No, you are correct.

The Pope and the Roman Catholic church spread so much propaganda to keep themselves in ruling power as a government, and fear-mongered everywhere they went about Hell and Satan if you didn't believe in God.
