There was no religion in the beginning when Adam was created and all the religions are based on pleasing of God and faith, in fact the blind faith on God.
Love and Truth are the basis for all Religions. Naturally Non-violence is the principle advocated by all Religions. The people who practice the religions attribute wrong meanings or many meanings to the teachings of saints and prophets who have founded the Religions. Hence there is strife and violence between the people who follow their beliefs in a fanatical way.
I think that it is all about the search for explanations to things that we don't understand.
All religions, not including evolution, involves a higher being, a.k.a. a God of some sorts. In Africa, in South America, in Europe, in North America, in Austrailia, in Asia, this was the basis of all areas of the globes religions.
I think religion is humanity's way of trying to reach up to God and earn His favor. I don't think God is religious, though. I think He wants relationship with a people, not religious practices!
I would say fear and uncertainty. Human beings needed to feel that they were not animals living in an unpredictable world. The more we have learned about science, the less gods we have needed to explain things. Ra no longer carries the sun across the sky in the day and returns at night with the moon. We have to believe in something higher because humans are very egocentric. We refuse to accept that we may just be animals. We have some "higher purpose" in life. It would kill most people to accept that they are not special and that our lives are nothing more than a flicker of time between two eternities.

And what does spirituality mean to you? For me it is about being in harmony with my inner self as well as all those around me. Nothing more complicated than that.

Arjuna (Hindu) fought and killed his family at the direction of his God, Krishna.Joshua (Jewish, Christian) killed the women and children of Canaan at the direction of his God, Yahweh. Is it ever OK to fight or kill based on your religious principles?
