Why Most People Believe in God
Desperate, helpless, weak, frustrated, fearful...regular humans often want more of the good and less of the bad things in their life than they can get on their own. So they pray for outside help. Such praying is wishful thinking that often becomes self-hypnosis. And self-hypnosis does, indeed, empower the praying person. With credulous society's approval, the hopeful praying person attributes this (totally natural) power to a Higher Power. The relation between wishful thinking, prayer and hypnosis becomes clear.
