Sure, religion is based around faith, and you know why it's based around faith? None of it is definite or even likely to be true. We can't prove it and it contradicts itself, because there's a very small chance it's all true, and the amount of religions in the world contributes to religion just being made up by a group of people before anything could be well-recorded. Because of this, it has always puzzled me why people are so obsessive with their religion. You can believe in the theory of God, heaven, hell, and whatnot. You can also believe in, say, Darwin's theory of evolutionism. I don't go preaching and actively obsessing over my ideology that this life is it, you can't just believe there's more and believe in other theories that have little truth behind them. But I have to think of it a lot when people are so obsessive over their own religion. Daily prayers (maybe more), using terms such as "God" and "Jesus" all of the time, going to church sometimes, etc. People let religion become a big part of their life. It seems the people who do the most have little else to do and aren't part of anything important (or were raised in that sort of environment). It just takes up time and gives them something to look forward to and do (making sure their soul is okay - a soul isn't a scientifically-proven thing, though), and they won't be able to know the difference if there is no after-life. People put a lot into and obsess over religions that are made up of information very far from facts, and they spend a lot of time doing and worrying about it. You can have faith to the extent that you can say that a religion is what you believe in, but you shouldn't let something so uncertain and unlikely take over your life.
