Evolution of religion throughout history.

A religion is a supernatural and cultural belief system.

I grew up in a secular home, but I attended an Assemblies of God church weekly with my aunt and uncle from around age 10 to 19. Although I am now an atheist and have a rather negative view of all religions, I still find religions interesting and try to learn about them, but mostly in order to help de-convert people.
