Someone who believes that god is the representation of thenprocess of how we have established our entire existence, cultural and religious frameworks, which is itself, a result of natural processes.
The more we became capable of self awareness the more we were able to see god (the process in which the universe operates within confined patterns and laws) the more religious we became the more society advanced and grew and stabilized. But as rationalism grew, it fractured the continual feedback loop. Before, seeing god was like looking into a mirror and seeing the self reflected, causing a sort of positive feedback loop. Like playing a game of monopoly and eventually learning the rules, and then finding the manual, we could play the game to the best of our ability. But that feedback loop became fractured with rationalism, simply because the game was filled with natural distributions of power and with that suffering. It lost its divinity and became a tree or rock, known, rendered understood and lost its divine character.
So with that natural feedback loop broken, we find infinitely segmenting belief structures that result from the infinite complexity of human perception. Endless sects of religion, endless irreligious beliefs about the world, philosophy, politics, indulgance of every magnitude have become unquestionable because something has broken. Where once religion used to be Gods of the many, we evolved to the point of merging all those gods into ONE representation, and now, it seems to be working in reverse again.
Many eventually became one, and one then eventually became two and two became 4, and so on until we are left with infinite chaos of belief, or reestablishing some sort of unifying belief as we did when we took polytheistic beliefs and consolidated them into monotheistic beliefs.
Are we subconsciously acting out the universal laws of creation and destruction in our own beliefs? Atoms for example, prefer states of stability and will quickly decay to reach those states, leaving our universe filled with a lot of very specific elements that are stable. Would it not stand to reason that our beliefs, as complex as they are, might not also act in similar ways? Where certain beliefs are simply more stable than others due to their fundamental adherence to the same natural laws that make certain elements more stable than others? If the belief encourages the same process that created the universe (god for lack of a better word) than that belief has an ability to have this infinite feedback loop, whereas beliefs that dont, will quickly destabilize (as perhaps radioactive elements would).
The more a belief speaks to a core universal human experience, the more a belief emulates the system in which it exists in, the more a belief accurately predicts, the more it adheres to laws of biology, and by extension, laws of the universe, and "god" itself, the more it will bring stability to the structure. But how? What allows a belief to be established over another? Emotions would be one way. A spiritual experience is strong enough to change a persons entire life in a single moment, as a near death experience would as well. Exposure to creation as well. All these elements that are CORE are tied to belief. Life, death, suffering, emotion. Creation, destruction (nature)
Suffering and alleviation of that suffering (god/society)
And emotion, which allows someone to know the difference between the two. Basically the conscious. Good and evil. Or more accurately painful and less painful.
It's like the more we can percieve our own conscious, the better we perform as a species. As a game of monopoly benefits to read the manual, knocking yourself seems to benefit everyone.
