Would the world today have been better off without religion?  In this presentation I will argue No. One of our greatest needs as human beings is the need to belong. Irrespective of the multiple expressions and denominations, religion will continue to be important in human life. It is psychologically relevant. As far as I am aware, we are the only species that seek more than food, friends and freedom in our lives. We are seekers of continuity, meaning, values, symbols and stories –historical and mythical ­– that address the deep existential issues of our lives. What we did not and do not need however, is the politicisation and paralysis of religious dogma.
