Christianity was created by the monarchs to control the populaton using fear of hell, its as fake as the harry potter books. Religion did however build a stronger society and with the weakening of religon we can all see the eroding of civiliy. That being said I dont believe, because I can live morally without religion, but wish more people would believe so they would live a more productive lifes.
P.S. Religion is a great tool used to beat addictions, because it can also become and addiction to a weak mind.
