"Madhukar, your use of the term dependent is critical here. It seems that a good deal of religion stems from dependency.  You describe it well and indeed I think it permeates most aspects of what we are describing here. "

"Joe C  Everything you say is a truth, but a part of the truth. The kind of people you describe are only a small part of a faithful population. The common man acquires his faith in god as a personal god who observes all that he does, punishes…"

"OK Joe, I think you are on to something especially with that last line.  I think we do need to look at the evolutionary strength of religion.  Yes there is something to be said for the fear factor and certainly the ignorance point.…"

"Joe C Undoubtedly the most important source of religion is fear; this can be seen in the present day, since anything that causes alarm is apt to turn people's thoughts to God. BERTRAND RUSSEL."

Madhukar Kulkarni replied to zackory Pauley's discussion Why do people have Faith ??
"People have faith only because trained to have faith. People sustain their faith only because of the fear of god. Mny persons may give many different reasons for their faith but the truth is this that faith is sustained by fear of the supernatural."
