After pondering for years on the cliche religion, i  understand it to be a sense of contrition that acts like a centrifugal force pulling us back from the throws of our impulsive urges.Conscience is probably the only master that governs us...i guess that is the reason why a cannibal tribe of Papua eats on the brain of their enemies believing on the custom of inculcating the energies of their enemies on them, just like we consume carrot or apple to consume the vitamins in it.Their customs and their religion manupulate their conscience in such a course that they permit their appetite to feed on humans.

  1. Karl Marx called religion as the " Opium of people". According to Marx, religion is an expression of material realities and economic injustice. Thus, problems in religion are ultimately problems in society. Religion is not the disease, but merely a symptom. It is used by oppressors to make people feel better about the distress they experience due to being poor and exploited. This is the origin of his comment that religion is the “opium of the masses”
