People want to believe. It’s always been that way. The need to subscribe to a religion beyond their choice has been the basis for everyone I know, the basis for belief. Religion and thereby god provides people with the opportunity to have something to rely and depend on when things go wrong. It also provides millions of people with the moral dependency that everything happens for a reason.
The religious find it great that with God, it becomes easier to establish and propogate rules. A certain level of homogeneity can be attained with ease. Marriage and family , two great stones of religion can be maintained with ease. A certain number of believers exist no matter what.
- For the non-believers the truth remains that God is nothing more than a delusion
