"served"? "they answered"?
I like the past on that sentence... now tell me... Now that we are advanced and literate and we're not that primitive people anymore we dont need religion cause something else must have answered those questions scientifically... now tell me: Why are we here? Why do we exist? What is the purpose of life?
Can you answer them yet?
You see... I'm not a religious person, but science doesnt have any answers either... at least religion explains it "their way", they do have "theories", as for science... not even a "what if".
I agree that religion served as crowd control... but not always! There is still more to religion than simple "crowd control" or "lies to feed the masses"... Nah... theres something more. Its not a "simple" lie that everyone accepts or its easy to understand. There has to be some truth to religions...
