Too many psychiatric disorders , too much sadness and depression, too many illnesses because you religion order you to keep clean , too many crimes , too many sexual assaults , maybe no moral standard, feeling lost because there is no guideline , too many myths , lack of respect between people and especially against women , to sum up it will be jungle life

Since religion is the alternative to total government control, we would probably create something else to maintain our freedom. We also need religion to help maintain hope in the world, so if it was gone, we would create something else to give us hope again.
If you think about it most wars were routed from religion, whether it was most peoples definition (catholic, Jewish, Hebrew) or it was just the flat out definition ( persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs[as in slaves and what not what they strongly believe is right])

People aren't comfortable with the unknown, chaos, uncertainty and/or a lack purpose. So, what would replace religion is cults and governments . (There are arguments that they are similar. ) People have not evolved enough to stop looking for answers or understanding externally. Additionally, people aren't comfortable with "not knowing", e.g., life after death.The purpose of life and etc. As long as we look externally to answer the "tough questions" or to solve problems or for a moral code. There will always be religion, cults and government.
Religion serves as a guide for life. There have been civilizations that have formulated their own religions because of this. Native Americans had their great spirits. the Aztecs, the Egyptian had thier gods. Greeks had their mythical gods. There were pagan gods and idols. Society has developed mores, or social practices as the necessary guides so their social units can survive. In a sense we all have our own personal religion which we use to guide us, which may or may not include a belief in a living God. Thus societies would be in internal and external conflicts with no religion. Peace on earth will come when everybody has the same religion.
