yes, I never thought of testing the question of God 'til I was maybe 12...how could God let someone nice be killed on a cross? How could God let the Planet of the Apes movie end that way?

It comes back to this: no other religion deals with the fact that bad things happen to good people and that there is a need for either side of a question to have a possible claim righteousness and a chance to have their claim considered fairly on in a controversy...
Most civilizations of the world have been fascist monoliths with struggles for power and luxury at the top being the main change. When the emporer was good, progress was made. But the example of Christ proved that the misunderstood might even have a transcendent point that's better than that of current authority...even the gay lobby is sometimes more righteous than the anti-gay lobby, though I do not think it is possible to say that about the purveyors and places of anonymous sex.
That is an extreme case...

btw Great minds must take people into account in ideas of anything but remote applications of science.
