I sort of view people's belief systems the same way I would view language. Part of being human is the need/ability to communicate in some way. In the same vein, in my opinion, an important part of being human is finding a way to communicate about concepts that our current level of neural/chemical evolution hasn't provided us a way to understand yet . . . namely our origins.

So, in the same way it makes sense to me that a child learns about the world through the language of their caretaker, we also form our initial concepts about our origins as a species from our parents. Some of us speak a bunch of languages, learn other languages later in life, or only speak one, but in my opinion, religion is simply a way that humankind talks about the same thing.
