@cicerone imposter,
Humans have gods not only for someone who created all of it. I think that is not so important. They want someone higher than themselves.
If they do not have a god they have idols in some form and often a politician.
Think of all the dictator /rules that have been treated like gods.
Or politics takes the place of religion.
Different cultures created different gods. That is expected. If you look into those different gods, you will find that no matter what culture there will often be gods representing the same human trades the good one, the bad one,.

@saab,
I learned not long ago that those who owned large acres of land became the kings. Some of those became gods.

@cicerone imposter,
Where did kings become gods?
And where and when did people with areas of land become kings?
Often there wete wars between clans and the strongest won. That did not mean being a king right away

@glitterbag,
That I know, but one cannot just say that "some kings become gods" in a general way. It sounds as if even we Europeans also still did it after Christianizasion.
North Korea - religion gone and leaders make themselves into living gods.

@cicerone imposter,
There are three groups
Where it is part of the religion and culture
a part where people think someone has become a god. That is not always accepted like with Mary - the church never sees her as a God
Or Prince Philip - that is a village which believes it.
a part with people who themsleves believe they are gods.
