In our own image: Why we treat things like people

A really good article about how humans endow everything with human attributes - including Egyptian deities. and my only excuse for posting about it is that today is a slow news day and the article has a photo of two Egyptian deities at the beginning! If you're interested in the human habit of anthropomorphising, this is a very good read.
