Thanks for answering (I really just wanted a reaction and answer) and I do realize that humanity wouldn't be humanity with out religion but what I meant was if (most) religions seek and promote happiness, peace and harmony why has so much blood been shed for it? And the three major abrahimic religions, why can't they cooperate if they have all the same sources and similarities? So is the purpose of religion to help humans seek leadership (god/s)? (referring to my first post) Because, a human is able to live without religion, I mostly think it's to answer the un-answerable (ex.: creation) but it certainly seems possible to a certain degree but I read 1984, the abolition of religion just lead to another type of worship related to religion. My last question in this post: What makes a person abandon his religion and/or stop believing in it?
