Probably either to control others or to lessen the sadness death caused, but that's just me thinking out loud

Fear

I agree.

Le Meh. People didn't know anything. There were lacks of developments. And people needed hope. Because when you're dying or suffering because of something, and you know that you cant make it, then to believe is the only thing left. That's why so many poor, ill and suffered people go to church, its generally good, except the believing.

But the Religion is being created by statements, morals and people"s cultures.
Creation of religions:
If you don't know anything and you"re a farmer in 4000 BC, your biggest fear is the natural disaster. But you don't know meteorology or any science. People started to pray to Holy Lolly (aka God), and because of a coincidence. that year there were no disasters. Then people start to believe massively, they connect history and beliefs and, woalah you just got a new religion. But of course there are many religions that have a different history.

But still if everyone prays when there's an large epidemy, and 7 out of 1000 people survive. Its the absolute proof that there is a paranormal force,ooh yeah. but what about all other 993 people?

Plus believing gives happiness to people, even if there is no upper-force.
You know that every life form fights for his life, and there's no afterlife. But you will sleep better if you"ll know that you"re going to heavens.

Religions are amazing things, with large diversities, but of course, its only a belief in imaginary friends backed up by the public.
