Individual Principles Forming a Religion

Our individual principles connect to each other to form a religion in the way that since we are all human beings we all share the same emotions and thoughts but not at the same time. I think that if you believe in something then you feel encouraged to do that. It is easy to start a religion because it is very likely that other people feel the same way as you, so you have followers who believe in the same things as you do.
