One of the most idiotic inventions known to man. The whole reason why religion was created in the first place was to try to explain the unexplainable or the unknown mainly due to what science couldn't explain at the time to make people feel more at ease when faced with the unanswerable. There are lots of people who think if it can't be explained then some higher power, force or being must have had to have done/did it and will take that as fact with hardly any or no evidence at all. The worst thing religion has done to mankind was cause religious wars. Countless of lives has been lost for something that most likely doesn't exist, is fictional and only real based on what the people of the religion say is true because they say it is with hardly any scientific evidence.
Priest: "How was the universe created?"

Scientist: "I don't know because we as humans don't possess the technology yet to come up with a correct answer to explain why and how the universe was created"

Priest: "of course science isn't going to figure out that question. you try to take something that can't be figured out scientifically only by religion and try to scientifically figure it out?"

Scientist: "well if it doesn't adhere to the laws of nature then it can't happen and doesn't exist. So how do you explain how the universe was created if you say science can't answer the question?"

Priest: "God created it."

Scientist: "Prove it!"

Webster's Dictionary 1828:
1. religion in its most comprehensive sense, includes a belief in the being and perfections of God, in the revelation of his will to man, in man's obligation to obey his commands, in a state of reward and punishment, and in man's accountableness to God; and also true godliness or piety of life, with the practice of all moral duties. It therefore comprehends theology, as a system of doctrines or principles, as well as practical piety; for the practice of moral duties without a belief in a divine lawgiver, and without reference to his will or commands, is not religion
"Every civil government is based upon some religion or philosophy of life. Education in a nation will propagate the religion of that nation. In America, the foundational religion was Christianity. And it was sown in the hearts of Americans through the home and private and public schools for centuries. Our liberty, growth, and prosperity was the result of a Biblical philosophy of life. Our continued freedom and success is dependent on our educating the youth of America in the principles of Christianity." Noah Webster ~ the guy who literally wrote the dictionary

The biggest lie in human history. It has been responsible for more deaths throughout human history than all other unnatural causes combined. For a thousand years the Church was a tyrannical dictatorship that used religion to control the uneducated masses. Free your minds and come into the 21st century

A sociological institution that's true purpose is to protect the family structure (by alienating homosexuals) through guilt, self-doubt and fear by spouting the dogma of a man-made God in order to increase the reproductive rate of pre-industrial or medieval civilizations, which in turn increases a species overall chance of survival.

Up until about two hundred years ago religion was needed in order to keep high birth rates and control the masses; however today, religion is used as a tool to make war, confuse and psychologically damage people and promote hatred towards diversity
