Religion is no different from any other form of organized activity or system.
There is no scholarly consensus over what precisely constitutes a religion. It may be defined as a cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, world views, texts, sanctified places, ethics or organizations that dictate the way we are supposed to live our lives.
Religion attempts to provide a channel of communication with a supernatural, superhuman, transcendental or spiritual being whom we worship, who refuses to show himself to us, choosing instead to remain an enigma and to keep us guessing as to whether he actually exists or not.
And just as in many other organized systems – such as the Cosa Nostra – religion too has led to only misery and hatred.
