Pathetic Beliefs of Humans
It's a losing battle. People would rather believe in a collection of fairy tales that contain ridiculous and evil notions such as eternal hellfire and brimstone for "God's" supposed beloved creations, rather than science. Humans need to believe that their lives mean something, that terrible things happen to "innocent" little kids for a dam good reason, that they are important, that they will live forever, and that they will see their loved ones again. Otherwise, most humans just cannot deal with every day life, the unknown and the eternal separation from loved ones. In the words of Karl Marx, "Religion is the opiate of the masses".
