Question
Dear Mr. Storch,
I'd like to know why people have created religions alongside the history in all different cultures.
I'll apreciate your help and clarification.
Thanks a lot!

Joseff Gopp

Answer
Religion (and subsequently philosophy) has attempted to answer the fundamental questions of meaning that humans have posed as long as we have been around.  What is the nature of the universe?  Why am I here?  What is the meaning of life?  Why is there something rather than nothing?

Religion offers on point answers to each of these questions.
