Why upon birth a child knows to go to the mothers breast to be feed but the child has to be taught about God why isn't information about god already pre encoded within it's DNA. ? Just curious
Food for thought?

One could argue that the fact the baby has that encoded in it's dna is a sign of information about god in and of itself.0
You'll have to ask God0
Maybe we know about God inside, but we learn the language that discusses God in our culture.0

Well, they don't.
They cry and get hungry and then there mother sticks her boob or bottle in it's mouth. Many babies have a problem latching onto the breast because they can't figure out the relationship between food and boob. It's a learned or "conditioned" behavior.0
Because feeding is an instinctual drive we are born with and God is a fictional creation by the human mind. Made as a realization of hope. Humans may be at the top of the animal kingdom in what we can accomplish, but we are still weak as a species. We fear death and the possible results of our actions. If situations seem dire and we are in great fear, we look for an out. We need there to be something bigger and mightier than us to "save" us. We have a need to be heard. At least most of us do. A need for evil to be punished and good to be rewarded. Something to take away the fear of realizing that life is insignificant as a whole and our little planet would do better without us. All through the ages gods were created as a way to deal with what we didn't understand, what we feared and what we wanted. Gods are a figment of collectual imagination. That's why a child is taught about a God instead of knowing. Just like the Easter bunny and Santa Claus. They aren't real except for in stories and depictions and a child wouldn't know about them unless you told them. If the word God disappeared from writing and was unable to be spoken about in any context by anyone who knows now. No child would grow up believing in one.1
