First off, people need religion or some type of experience where one can feel some sort of connection to an external, intangible entity. Since the
dawn of time, people have attributed something to a higher being or a collective group of beings. Every civilization has a religion, past, present
and future. Granted, in the ancient civilizations, Gods were the creators of things, they were used to explain things that, without science, man
could not explain: Take the introduction of fire, the creation of horses, why evil exists in the world, why the sun rises and sets. In our modern
day, there appears to be less of a practical use for religion because we have science to explain the sun setting and rising. In a way, our
comprehension of natural phonmenon through science has superceeded our dependence on religion as a way to explain things.
Secondly, I think that all the religions that are currently in existance are all approaching the same idea or belief from different angles. It is a
matter of perspective that governs the beliefs of humans.
