We are apes of African origin, first cousin to the chimpanzee. We evolved to perceive some patterns better than others. For instance, we can see red and orange against a green background better than we can see ants crawling through the grass. Fruit being a better meal than ants. We are also tool designers. We recognize tools made by others when we find them. So, archeology is a valid profession for some. Some people take this recognition of human technology too far. They project our innate designer skills onto everything in the universe. They believe a giant magical version of a human mind must have built all there is. This is simply hubris. We might be smart apes but we are not that smart. God is simply an anthropomorphic projection of the advanced ape mind on to a universe that was doing fine before we came around and will be just fine after we are extinct.
