    "Religion" is how we label a wide variety of phenomena. S. Baptists, Buddists, Siberian shamans don't a lot in common, but we call them all "religion".

    True religion is the source of our knowledge of God and His holy will. There are of course many false religions, that steer people away from God's will.

    Religion; A scam that tells you that normal things that everyone does makes a sky pixie mad, but that if you give your wealth to the religious leaders, the sky pixie will get over it. Me, 12 Apr 2014

    It exists so that the people at the top of the scam pyramid don't have to find real jobs.

    "Why does religion exist?"

    Thousands of years ago, ancient people wondered why all these creatures are here. They knew nothing about science so they invented a god with unlimited magical powers. Other people made stuff up about the god. Then other people made stuff up. Eventually, religions were invented by people who made stuff up.

    A good example is when people made stuff up about the Magic Jeebus Man.

    Of course, it's all bullsh!t. Morons believe the bullsh!t because it makes them feel good.

    I believe that religion was once adaptive for us humans in an evolutionary sense.  Why else would it occur independently in all human societies in all places and all times?  Of course they are all different so it is very likely that none of them are "true" but the fact that religion is so pervasive is in itself significant.  It served as a kind of "social glue" that helped humans band together for mutual protection.  We no longer need that but it persists as a kind of evolutionary vestige.
