Who made who?
The egotistical part came when we humans invented gods and made them so that they cared about us. We even conned ourselves into thinking that we were the center of the universe, and that the universe was created just for us even though we are one planet out of trillions living in a galaxy that is one of billions.
The funny part is that we just couldn't hide it. We made the gods in our image.

Re: Who made who?
Not so sure any of the gods but the Biblical God was ever said to "care about us,"
So all that stuff about the "Chosen People"?
But most of the gods of the world's tribes have been demons who demand propitiation and sacrifice of their worshipers, who always approach with some kind of gift.
And after you give them a gift they will start to care about you and not punish you like those unbelievers. I get it.
