Well, have to disagree. It surely serves a number of functions, as 
does the instilled conviction that women and other lesser breeds are 
stupider than men, etc. The fact that the alleged subject matter of 
religion (one or more supposed deities) is an empty class doesn't 
prevent the activity from having clear benefits, as sorcery used to, 
and not just to the priestly and administrative bosses.

Not that I think Olga and I *really* disagree on any of this. :)
