This article desperately needs sources which respond to the parody of religion by addressing why any sane, rational person would actually believe in a real religion. One possibly fruitful avenue would be to consider the issue of death. Barring some incredible medical advances, the grim reaper will come for all of us sooner or later. Even if the natural process of aging could be stopped, the probability of dying in some sort of accident asymptotically approaches 1 as lifespan increases. An atheistic death contains features that are scary to many people, and probably the majority of the world's population: physiological death is The End. Many people have grave qualms about their own non-existence. Alternatively, when someone really, truly believes in a religion that promises an afterlife, death acquires a more salubrious character: it is not a terminal event to be feared, but merely a new beginning in Heaven/Valhalla/etc. These fruits of belief hold irrespective of the fact that the truth of any theology cannot be proven by purely analytic methods.

Arceism: the worship of the Pokegod, Arceus. I guess it was here, and it should be here again, or else He will strike you down to the Distortion World with His Almighty Judgment attack. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:50, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
