i think that religion is there to protect ordinary humans. To let them develop into honest, polite, moral individuals, with purpose and drive. Without religion, america would be a hellhole. It's there to deceive people and console them in times of trouble and despair. That's why religion is important, to mentally convince the poor, the needy, the worthless, that they are actually worthwhile and have potential in life, even if the statistical odds of such a thing happening is nil.
