Look at the world, there must be a higher deity who decided our existence!

Science explains a lot, but religion is intriguing and a Creator makes more sense

It MUST be real nice thinking that we have SOME purpose in life... (sarcasm)!

Because humans like to think they're special and have a purpose in life when they really don't. They'd rather believe in a lie then accept the truth, because the lie makes them feel better. The 3rd option: ''It's nice to think that humanity is special and we have some sort of purpose in life'', is the basic foundation of 1st and 2nd option, except they *sound* nicer to say then say the truth (3rd option). If you're gonna believe a lie you might as well lie about believing in it.
