Radical thinking..

There are quite a few things that our stone-age human brains crave, things that were beneficial to humans living in a hunter-gatherer setting but that we now know are harmful and unnecessary. Modern, enlightened office-based humans now know for example that sugary and fatty foods do unwanted things to our circulatory systems and that clubbing a member of a neighbouring tribe over the head in order to steal her hoisin duck wrap doesn't contribute to social cohesion. I would put believing in angels, gods and evil spirits and that they have a "special" plan for us into that same bucket, i.e. things that we need to educate ourselves away from.

The new J&M cartoon economically illustrates this idea.
