Minds in the jargon of life, nature, nurture, culture, etc. need a solid independent basis of knowledge to hold on during any mind blowing things happen. The thing(s) that hold on at these times is or are called Deity. Practically, it could be anything, seen or unseen, but scientifically and in faith the Creator is the only being possible to be the only Deity. As He is the one who is the source of everything and has limitless ability and power to support every single being and occasion, yet, seen or unseen.
