    it isn't "more often than not".  Organized religion is a tool that has been used because it is a powerful way to control people.  But it certainly isn't the only way.   And, as I pointed out, many of the worst atrocities were committed by dictators that either banned religion outright (Stalin, Pol Pot) or actively undermined religious leaders in order to destroy power rivals (Hitler, Saddam Hussein).

    The fact is that people use religion to control the masses...and they use other devices to control the masses.
