Another thread in this forum about when did we make the choice about religion.. Kinda got me thinking about the bigger question.. Why do we have it and do we still need it?? I can only answer for myself and as I am sure most of you know, I am not religions.. I am not one that I would say needs a religion.. Science for me has explained much of the previous unknowns.. For instance, we all know that the Sun and Moon are not gods.. We know what an eclipse is and can predict them.. We know what astroids are and we know how the weather works.. There are not really in serious mysteries for mankind.. Nothing that religions really fills in for.. So why do we have it?? Why do we need it?? What is it that religions fulfills and what purpose does it serve?? Do we as a people need it to survive or do you personally need it?? If so why??
