A way of making sense of the world. Often religions invole a higher power i.e. God. It is easier to leave your problems to a higher power rather than to solve them yourself. As life got more complicated for humans, we developed religion out of laziness. The existance of religion today can be attributed to ignorance, laziness, tradition, and the need for a sense of purpose.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, & the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
