Religion is the individual search for identity, understanding and peace of mind.
It is not a "search" for anything. Religion is based on the culture in which one is born and raised. It's essentially an accident of birth, because the majority follow the religion of one's parents.
Atheists have "searched" for truth, and found that religion is a hoax. Religion has never improved the human lot, even though they claim moral superiority.
The bible is rife with errors, omissions, and conflict of messages. How anyone can reconcile these "god's words" as a perfect message doesn't know how to rationalize our reality.
There is no proof of any god, but we are learning more about where humans originated on this planet, and how migration of our species created the cultures we now call "race." These facts are our reality.
