    If you will take a look at Clarence Graham's hierarchy of needs you will
find that the motivation toward religion changes substantially as our
position on the hierarchy changes.
    Most of the time the critics of religion concentrate only on very firm
fundamentalist churchs regardless of which major faith they are looking at.
This ignores the fact there are people in all major religions whose
motivational needs are quite different from those attracted to the
fundamentalists and whose religious practice is quite different.
