I can see why people turn to religion.
Not those who have been brought up religious, as I believe that is indoctrination, but those who were never religious in the first place and choose to follow one of the many Gods that have been created.
It is the desire for meaning. The wish to have,and to know, your life has a purpose.
You are here to do God’s work. Part of a greater plan. Momentarily passing through this plane on your way to something much greater.
It is a comfort. A white lie that allows you to wake each morning and go to bed each evening believing that these 80-years are not just an accident of biology and evolution.
