Because othervise they have to admit that they were wrong believing in various Santa Clause(s) (like Zeus, Allah, Jahove, etc.).

But is not it makes you look dumb (or stupid, or primitive - feel free to label) if you disagree with FACTS (that ALL KNOWN PROCESSES in universe go as PRESCRIBED by mathematical laws (which we historically call natural laws, because we did not know their origin in the past) and which (natural laws) originate from various mathematical symmetries)?

If there is no room for gods, spirits, demons, etc in all known processes (and never were, by the way) - does not it looks not very "cool" to be ignorant and to insist that there is influence of god(s) in known phenomena? Is not is the same to saying that Ra pushes Sun across sky, or Zeus shoots sparks, for example - (or to saying that some "Big Being" somehow blowed the Big Bang all over the universe (say, by breathing vacuum in and in a sudden powerful blow breathing it out)?

Is it more cool in being ignorant, than in acknowledging that all known processes in universe go naturally (=by math rules)?
