Pratt opens his work on The Psychology of Religious Beliefs by saying, "that if an atheistic inhabitent of Mars were to visit this planet, greater than the wonder of steam and electricity, would be the fact that we believe in a God whom we have never seen and cannot see". This universal belief in God is a striking thing and the question at once forces itself upon us, why do men believe as they do and what are the psychological bases underlying that belief?
