What would the world be like without religion? What if we never had God or a higher being who we considered creator and author of all things? Even some atheists in times of terror and dread call upon God for mercy. When we reach points where our lives are caving in and we have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to, why do we suddenly find faith in a higher source to bring back order in the midst of the storm? Can we do without religion? Is it really the opiate of the masses?
