"Why People Seek Solace In Gods," the question is, but this refers to an answer that is already assumed. The word solace refers to peace, as though you are accepting a comforting delusion. That religion is somehow a bad thing. Uhhhh, actually, it's kept humanity from succumbing to their own fears for quite some time. (e.g. "I do not need to be afraid of snakes, this substance is an antivenom" is a type of faith. Your body entirely may be allergic to the antivenom, yet you trust in its ability to reject the toxin. Because we have faith, we are able to focus on goals and overcome our problems)
But all I hear from this wall of text is a lot of fear talking.
You know what that is? It's an urban legend.
You call me superstitious because I have faith, but what I believe in at least as much as God is the power of the mind to create weal or woe. So how are you using yours? If I told you that in three days a Storm would come (no, not a storm, a Storm) and your town would be destroyed. Are you going to believe it? I'm from far off, and I'm gonna say that I'm an expert. You should always trust experts, right? It's quite impossible for any of them to ever lie to you...
Put your faith in gods? Don't? Who cares! One thing you should not put your faith in is those selling you fear. Learn to overcome your fears, or keep them to yourself.
Or shall I sell you fear as well? You shouldn't go swimming in the ocean, because there might be squid or sharks. And giant whirlpools to the sea floor. Nor in a lake for there may be alligators. And there might be wildcats and snakes while walking through the park. And the forests might have bears or lions. And at any point, and earthquake might open rift to fall all the way down to lava as you are walking along.You shouldn't go out at all! And if you talk to someone you like, they might reject you and call you a frightened child. So you shouldn't take any risks at all in this life! Do this, and you'll be living for a long long time (only you won't really be living)
so you should definitely take my advice and avoid all risks.
