I came across some articles explaining the existence of religions.

In the early days, when there were so many natural disasters happening around, the people then were quite ignorant about the causes of all these phenomenons, thus they put all the responsibilites to something which was more powerful than themselves, something which was 'intangible'. So when disasters strike, they would think that they had not been behaving well or they might have done something wrong which make their god 'angry'. And when their prayers answered, they claimed the existence of god.

Well, i think the story 's quite logical in a way. May be that's how religions came about.
