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

severalspeciesof's Avatar Jump to comment 107 by severalspeciesof

This may have been said already, but I think the issue 'Religion as comfort to people in distress' would depend on their core personality, though I can't even hazard a guess as to what type personality religion would be a comfort to...

And obviously it would depend upon the situation at hand...

My suspicions are that, in general, it may have been in the past more comfort than distress, otherwise it wouldn't still be around evolutionarily speaking...
