What is a religion? Here is my definition:


A religion is belief in and worship toward a divine supernatural power


I believe that it's important to be religious. It's inexplicable that the universe exists in the first place, therefore I think we should pay respect to the supernatural power that allowed us to exist. I believe this is a mystery that cannot be solved, but the only realistic explanation is that a metaphysical divine being is responsible.
