The strength and weakness of reason is that it imposes a uniform way of thinking and understanding. Hence its usefulness is immediate to society but not to that extent to the individuals in the same society; again the reason evolves all the time. The very evolution happened at differing geographical isolations made individuals with different levels of mental capacity; the uniform force of reason of society threatens individual minds that are not fully evolved to grasp the reason; such minds are weak and only attained a capacity to create questions without an ability to generate answers; having created the questions they are ready to receive any kind of answers instead of handling the reason. The reason is a day to day struggle for them while the religion has been made available as a readymade answer for any circumstances. Hence at the level of society the reason wins but at the individual level of practice the reason often fails and that makes religion to win.
