Many people are members of some
kind of religion. A few fundamentalists
even believe in theirs so strongly that
they think it is correct to kill for it.
Yet many people disagree with this reasoning, and a few atheists even claim there is no God anyway.
There are many good and moral people, in all cultures worldwide, in both camps.
Without making hard conclusions, this
is one agnostic’s theory, based upon his understanding of ancient and modern history, as to how so many of us came to belong to a formal religion in the first place.
