Have you ever considered the etymology of religion, or how religion is essentially the Social Contract. It is the collection of obligations people hold in common.

That people hold supernatural, superstitious, and specious beliefs is an inevitable part of human neurology. We're not evolved to find truth, we're evolved to survive and reproduce.

People accept the ideology, dogma, or religion that shares their desires, offers incentives, and confirms fears.
