Is worship natural or man-made?

So it depends on how you define worship. I'm using the example of following unconditionally and exclusively for the purpose of survival.

If you follow unconditionally and exclusively because your life depends on it then it is natural.

If you follow unconditionally and exclusively even though you gain little or nothing from it then it is probably man-made.

If a dependant animal receives nothing or an inadequate amount to survive from a parent I presume it will look elsewhere. Same probably goes for a dependant human.

But if a person worships another human and is not dependant on that other person for something very important then I would have no explanation.

So I suppose worship in this context could be seen as unconditional loyalty to the death, or being deathly loyal.
My question to you is why do you ask?
Below is from the web.

"The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.
"the worship of God"
Similar:
reverence

venerating

adoring

devotion

thanksgiving

praising

glorifying

exaltation

extolling

respect

honoring


laudation

show reverence and adoration for (a deity); honor with religious rites.
"the Maya built jungle pyramids to worship their gods

So with all these words referring to action of worshipping, what's your point?
Of course it's man made if you rationalize it, but it's natural if you describe a baby adoring its parents.

So what's your point really?

There should be good changes in the person who worships, but the opposite has been seen. That's why this question cames in my mind.
