The more I see of those who follow gods, the less I believe in any gods at all.

I think that the belief in gods is most likely an adaptation with evolutionary advantages like this, or this, or this. Alternately, it's an attempt by the collective human psyche to create a comforting fictional afterlife to buffer the realization of our certain mortality.



Everybody here's got a story to tell
Everybody's been through their own hell
There's nothing too special about getting hurt
Getting over it, that takes the work
