10. Religion throughout history attempted to explain the unexplainable until science explained it.

Their are still things that are unexplainable and religion, conspiracies and myth will fill the void that fear leaves.
Fear is a powerful weapon when authority needs to control the masses. It is also a convenient weapon considering the
percentage of human beings who believe in omnipresent beings and magic.
