I think religion came into existence because of the weaknesses we humans have. We look for support in distress and try to answer questions like 'How did we come into existence?' 'who created everything around us' and when we did not find support or a logical answer we created god. Then man made religion which divided us, which is sexist, oppressive and violent.
