A recent study reveals that people’s views of God are simply a bigger version of themselves.

[Nicholas Epley at the University of Chicago] found that when people contemplated God’s opinions, their brains activated similarly to when they were contemplating their own opinions — the same was not true when they contemplated the opinions of other people.

The exception, of course, are people who believe in a revealed religion where a wrathful God often makes them a bit uncomfortable.
