*laughs* because we're alive and want to stay that way. Sooner or later,
there is a shortage of food for a species. At that point, there are 2
#1. everyone dies.
#2. everyone fights until ( food > eatters )
Religion is the way humans have decided to choose teams, since #2 is the
only valid choice. It's as bad as any other method I can think of.
We'll also invoke #2 over oil, gold, diamonds, and a hundred other
things proving beyond doubt we're the stupidest of all lifeforms.
