Religion is a complex cultural system of behaviours and practices, views, texts, laws, rules, holy places, ethics, morals and societal organisation that connects humanity to what could be called "an order of existence" or “a reason for being”. It has dominated humanity more-or-less since man first drew breath. It is essentially about explaining the unknowable, about replacing truth, or the search for truth, with belief. Its aim is to make people wonder but not for them to wonder “ why ”. It has started many wars and also ended a few of them. It can do good and offers hope and comfort to billions of people but it can also twist, distort and manipulate people into doing terrible things. It exists in its many forms to present a view or philosophy of a world that justifies and exalts mankind’s place in it. Some religions have one God as a figurehead, for example, Christianity and Islam. Others have many gods, such as Hinduism, while some have no gods at all, such as Buddhism.
