When we say "It is raining," what does the "it" refer to? Does this language quirk explain why we believe ....

... things need a creator, something to be the "it"?

Is this one reason that we have trouble seeing that the universe is constantly creating itself, i.e., that nothing is raining other than the rain itself?

(Sorry if I made your hair hurt.)
