Organized religion was created by ancient royalty as a means to better control and manipulate the non-royal populace. It made them ignorant and superstitious, as well as creating a mental 'box' that they were not able to think outside of.

It also causes a decline in mental ability, and deterioration of the ability to think and reason things out rationally. It is a form of psychological warfare. Without religion holding our progress back, we would have been much further ahead in many areas, including being able to live much longer, healthier lives.

We would not have had many of the wars that we had, no Crusades, or Inquisition, or Isis and religious suicide bombers. Nor would there have been the many mentally ill people who have either killed their own family members or others in order to 'save' them or as enemies of their God. And the children who have went without needed medical care because their parents believed in praying instead.
