Why hasn't there been a religion created recently- say like 40 years ago? Is it because people thousands of years ago were easily fooled and thus lead to generation after generation being brought up to believe in bs?

If someone created a religion today do you think it would get that many followers? Or will it fail as people haven't been indoctrinated from birth to believe it like the other religions?

Nonexistence sucks for existing creatures. It's scary and terrible and once you realize life only exists to sustain itself and actually isn't good, your only three choices are to live for personal pleasure, die, or start believing in a lie to feel more whole.

Of course religions are thousands of years old - humanity is. The forced concept of an afterlife and intelligent/sapient thought go hand in hand.

Scientology is allegedly a religion, and came into being in the mid 20th Century.

Mormonism (also allegedly a religion) is from the 19th Century I believe. The Bahai faith dates to the mid 19th Century

Can't think of any others off the top of my head though.

The main religions were very good at expanding and suppressing others.
