The probable cause of existence of the concept of God

Personally speaking I am an atheist. I don't believe that there is any God. However globally we find that almost all cultures have assigned themselves one God or another. In India, which has been the spiritual capital of the world for centuries, myths and legends have assigned 330 million Gods.

    However there were groups of great Indian sages who never believed in the existence of God of any kind viz the Sankhyas. The Buddhists didn't believe in any God.

     Now we must realize living beings have evolved from simple unicellular organisms to complex and intelligent multi cellular beings like us. The process of evolution has not stopped it continues. Secondly what we think and do has a deep effect on our personality and character and hence over a period of time it goes into our genome. So the risihis created the concept of Gods and created Gods like Shiva, Vishnu, Krishna, Bramha etc so that people worship them, think about them and meditate on them, so that with the forces of evolution they become somewhat akin to them.
