As the population in the world increases, it has become difficult to control people. The easiest way to control people is to give them something to believe in. For example, if our conscience does not stop us when we do something bad, our belief will stop us from thinking that this action will be punished, or we do it not because their goodness comes from within, but because we believe that a greater power will reward us.

Millions of people on earth believe that life will end with death, that there is no life and god beyond death. In some countries, overt atheism has never been more popular than it is today. Phil Zuckerman, professor of sociology at California Pitzer College, says that today the number of atheists is higher than ever before, both in total and as a percentage of the population. According to a Gallup poll of 50,000 people in 57 countries, between 2005 and 2011, the proportion of people identifying themselves as religious dropped from 77 percent to 68 percent, while the proportion of people identifying as atheists rose by 3 percent to 13 percent of the total population.

In fact, there are many theories, but there are only logical conclusions that many people reject. This is something that settled in the early days of humans. When the human population starts to increase, it becomes uncontrollable. Therefore, they are given a religion to believe. And they are prevented from doing bad by shortcuts.
