Are you religious? Do you know why your religion was created? Do you know why there are so many religions?
First and foremost, religion was created for 3 Primary purposes and then served a secondary purpose after its original inception. The very first organized religions were invented by what the Sumerians called the "Annunaki" about 6000 years ago, and various versions of it were given to the Sumerians, the Mayans, the Aztecs, and the Egyptians. You can verify this information yourself by reading Zechariah Sitchens translations of the Sumerian Clay Tablets. Michael Tellinger wrote a masterpiece on this history that he called "Slave Species of god" which helps put everything into proper perspective.
