← Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

Personally I don't subscribe to the 'truth at all costs' stance of some atheists. One cannot subscribe to the alleviation of suffering......and fail to grasp that people's unsubstantiated myths may in fact provide just such alleviation. The universe is not exactly keeping tabs on who believed what......and if the truth is oblivion then you're not going to some day be patted on some ethereal back for having believed it.
