Everybody has a god - No exceptions - Everybody does. Everybody has to, because everybody must appeal to some authority to decide what is real and what is not real in order to make sense out of life. Everybody must attribute his origin to something, and everybody has to have some purpose in life. Everybody has an opinion about what is wrong with things in the world. And everybody has some idea of how to find safety from what is bad. Each one of these functions of deity requires us to make an un-provable assumption, a faith-based statement that goes beyond the sphere of science into the realm of religion and philosophy. Therefore I attribute these four functions to deity.
