Do you believe religion makes you happier? Not within itself, no. It tends to encourage higher expectations than reality does, because you are expecting your deity to do things for you while you sit back and pray. I was always disappointed--and a bit upset--by god's lack-of-performance on my behalf.
Do you think social networks and communities outside of religious groups count as well? I think church-based groups may be the only reason religions still exist in a modern, technilogical world. The fellowship is what produces the "high" that keeps godslaves from crashing when they're hit with reality. It's why they have to go back week after week to get their faith "fix".
