 Origin belief - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An origin belief is any story or explanation that describes the beginnings of humanity, earth, life, and the universe (cosmogony).
Such beliefs can be derived from many different venues including scientific investigation, metaphysical speculation, or religious belief.
However, "origin beliefs" may be generalized to include non-religious claims and theories based in contemporary science or philosophy—the steady state theory, origin of life and panspermia fall into this category.

 The Reformed Objection to Natural Theology
More specifically, with reference to beliefs that we could refrain from holding ("eluctable" beliefs as he calls them), we are rationally justified in holding them unless we either have or ought to have adequate reasons for supposing that they are false or formed in a way that is not reliable.
A rational or justified belief, for instance, typically indicates that someone’s belief is positively related to truth as a cognitive desideratum, e.g., the person has good evidence, grounds, indications, or reasons for supposing that his belief is true.
Internally rational beliefs are beliefs formed by proper functioning faculties “downstream from experience.” That is to say they involve the proper response to whatever is given to us by way of sensuous and or doxastic experience.

Belief in religion and faith is this new element.
Without a belief in life after death, or in GOD's existence suddenly the driving force of life for humans with limited intellect would seem to disappear and there would be total chaos and anarchy and eventual destruction of human species.
There is also another survival aspect of religious belief, which is: The most successful religion (measured by number and/or growth rate) is not necessarily the one which is true or best in an objective sense but which is the most successful in maintaining cohesion among its followers and gives them advantage over the other religions.

 Quodlibet Online Journal: Knowledge of God and Alvin Plantinga's Reformed Epistemology - by Patrick J Roche   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Plantinga's claim was that belief in God is 'properly basic' in the sense that the believer is within his 'epistemic rights' or not in beach of any 'epistemic obligations' in believing that God exists without inferential evidence or 'proof' from other beliefs such as the 'proofs' of natural theology.
Scripture is self-authenticating in the sense that for belief in the great things of the gospel to be justified, rational and warranted no historical evidence and argument for the teaching in question, or for the veracity or reliability or divine character of Scripture (or the part of Scripture in which it is taught) are necessary.
But the paradigm cases of properly basic belief and the presuppositions on which their determination is based will at least intimate the types of belief that a properly functioning belief-producing capacity would be understood within a particular 'world-view' or epistemic community to produce in different circumstances/conditions.

 Creationism - Crystalinks
This belief was based on the authority of Genesis, the Qu'ran, and other ancient histories, which were held to be historically accurate and no systematic or scientific inquiry was made into the validity of the text.
Creationism or creation theology encompasses the belief that human beings, the world and the universe were created by a supreme being or deity.
There are creationists who also dispute scientific accounts of the origin of life, and of the geological history of Earth, the formation of the solar system, the origin of the physical universe, and a few even support such ideas as geocentrism and a flat Earth.

 Jesus the Nazarene - Myth or History? Chapter 11   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The belief in the resurrection is indeed the foundation upon which the whole structure of primitive Christianity is built.
The faith in the resurrection was in its origin an affirmation and a conviction of a religious nature, and it was not an experimental observation.
It is because, under the influence of the belief in His resurrection (a direct consequence of the impression He had made on them), the disciples of Jesus, in the exaltation of their faith, saw in Him no ordinary man, but directly identified Him with the celestial Messiah.

This is a general discussion on the roots of religious belief without focusing on any specific religion.
But even in that case if that person told others about his/her experience (and it would be a truthful account, excluding of course hallucinatory experiences/illusions etc) and others believed in him/her, then the belief of others will be a result of belief in a human, unlike the person who experienced the divine revelations directly.
Oftentimes believers in blind faith respond to critics of their blind belief (atheists/agnostics/freethinkers) saying their critics are biased themselves and their disbelief in the blind faith is itself due to their bias against the believers.

Other animals claimed as ancestors are tigers, apes, cats, goats, buffalo, etc. The evolution belief reaches back beyond the lemur and postulates that humans came up through the ranks from their particular idea of the ultimate ancestor, the organic matter in a primordial sea.
The new materialism of the day, the belief in a utopian world through human accomplishment, and the subsequent belief that there is no higher authority than humans themselves, were ideal conditions for proselytizing the animal origins belief.
Many people, then and now, labored under the misconception that the creation belief is archaic and evolution is the "new" explanation for the origin of life, when in reality evolution is the ancient animal origins belief packaged as a new scientific theory.
