It is one of billions that make up humanity. Humanity more or less classes the brain as a computer, and lots of these computers independently and through a myriad of experiences called life come to the conclusion that there is a God.

This is what is known as the fallacy "appeal to popularity".
Just because something is supported by large numbers of folks does not make it so.

How could the information in the DNA make itself? how could the chains of amino acids that form the proteins appear by accident and get it just right?

How does a Salt crystal "know" how to form a cube and get it just right?

...It's gotta be God!!

Why?

I am not saying it is not God. I am asking why do you feel it must be.

Nature seems to operate on natural processes. That is why it is called nature.

If God is nature then you are simply taking one word and substituting it for another.
This is another logical fallacy known as distinction without a difference.
