Religion is an anachronistic vestige of pre-modern societies. Religion offers comforting, though naive and often inaccurate, explanations about the origins and future of humankind, the Earth and just about everything else. Religion is often learned in youth - when children readily mimic the behavior of their parents, siblings and peers. Unfortunately, most adults never recognize that the religious perspectives, values and practices that they were indoctrinated with as children are poorly suited to living in a modern scientifically oriented society where it is understood that there is no empirical evidence for such things as: magic, demons, angels, gods, heaven, hell, the tooth fairy, the easter bunny, Santa Claus and the boogy man.

Religions continue to exist today because they are inherently adaptable; religious dogma changes markedly over time. Moreover, the many conflicting codes of behavior that religions advance can be used to justify any attitude or action, regardless of what the current century may be.
christianity, islamism, judiasm, buddhism, and other lies are typical religions.
