A recent ep of Monster Talk the guest Jerry Drake made an aside to the concept of the Influencing Machine. It's a way for schizophrenic people to externalize the voices they're hearing inside their heads. Think of the Son of Sam who thinks his dog told him to kill. Drake wondered how much of ancient religion/mythology is really the result of the Influence Machine.

I can certainly believe that all religions were started by schizophrenics. Sociopathic schizophrenics.
