Response to DetlefK (Original post)

9. My psychological view on the subject.

See “Locus of Controll”. External Locus of control involves some thing or some one else is in control of you, ie, God. Internal Locus of control assigns control to one’s self. Religion assumes external, while internal puts it on the individual.

My theory.
