Religion will survive as long as there is fear, conflict, and ignorance. Fear is a part of us. "There are no atheists in foxholes." Conflict comes from diversity, which is, on a peaceful level, desirable. Wariors believe that god is on their side. The creating urge grows strong indeed when death is realizable. Ignorance is inevitable. Religion will fill the gaps in our knowledge that science can not. Or at least, until science does. There are plenty of other more convenient religions to turn to, after christianity has been dismissed.
