Thomas,

>>>Primitive peoples think God controls everything in nature. In our scientific society natural phenomena have more rational explanations, but it's obvious that there will always be something behind those rational explanations which we can't understand. When we got to a point where math describes the entire known universe, people started asking the why of that. "Sure, God no longer makes thunder but he sure makes the math that makes the thunder". Until we discover something more basic that makes math, then people will place God behind that too.
