    I have a relationship with God that has nothing to do with religion (although I don't discount the work of religious people and am extensively read in a number of religious traditions). So I'd certainly fall back on that.

    I'd also rely on the people in my life to help me through whatever difficult time I encountered.

    I guess I could also have voted for science because, dependent upon what the issue was, that would certainly be one method of dealing with it.
    l believe the science doesnt give you hope and just deals with concrete phenomena but the belief offers you an aesthetical way of thinking

    If I have cancer I hope that a medical/scientific treatment is going to work for me.

    There is no replacement. You're geared toward it or you aren't. Proclivity towards religion isn't going to substitute for a disinterest in psychology, philosophy, science, politics, culture or art. I'm not sure why the reverse would be valid.

    Faith and religion are not the same thing. Faith is the goal, not religion.

    They may not be the same thing, but the latter sure does rely on the former else there is little point to religion.
