Why do people think that the bible is the word of God when it was written by man and not by God?

Because they were told it was so and they believe it. It seems to me that if it were really true then god would have used his own publishing company to get the word out. And what Randy said.

Humans inscribed the Bible, but our Creator gave them the message. Proof of that is in the fulfillment of prophecy. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, a fact that was prophesied by Micah (5:2) and was actually quoted for men who were looking for him as a baby (Matthew 2:1-7) In fact, a long prehistory of prophecies pointed to him as the Christ.
25 So he said to them: “O senseless ones and slow of heart to believe all the things the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things+ and to enter into his glory?” 27 And starting with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them things pertaining to himself in all the Scriptures.
Man cannot do this with this level of accuracy. But God in his inspired word does.
Also, while the Egyptians, who founded one of the oldest human civilizations, used dung to treat their sick people (which made them sicker), the Hebrews were taught by God's law to bury it, and to wash their hands when eating or before coming before God in worship
And when pagans and believers in other gods taught and believed that the earth was held up by a giant elephant and a turtle, the Bible stated three thousand years ago that God was "hanging the earth upon nothing" (Job 26:7)

God told the prophets to write what He said and to write what they saw. When the Holy Spirit dwells inside a man, the man cannot help but write what God wants written. For that reason, the prophets of God have never, never been wrong. And I can say the Holy Bible is The Word of God and what is written is TRUTH, because Christ Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the Life and no man comes to the Father except by Me."

The Bible was from God. Man was inspired by God and wrote it down. So God is the true author of the Holy Bible.

Religion and the various books are the foolish beliefs that the gullible believe in order to be stupid enough to to believe religion leaders.

66 Books; 40 writers; 1,500 years in the writing; all major themes are consistent throughout all the books. Many writers even cross referencing one another, and no libraries to copy others from. It points to God authoring all 66 books as His Word, and His Holy Spirit inspiring each writer. 2 Peter 1:21 and 2 Timothy 3:16.

Because the texts were written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the book itself was compiled under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
