Do you believe that there is something described as 'Atma'?Initially, humans used to live like other animals.
They used to get born, live and finally die.
The scenario got changed only after development of their intellectual faculty.
They started thinking and attempting to find solutions of inexplicable issues like life and death etc.
The concept of 'Atma' etc. was evolved by any such intellectual and many started believing in the same.
Thus, apparently only the intellect is the culprit.
