It seems like some people don't have the mental strength to rely on themselves instead of a god to make things happen in their life. Maybe they feel like they need someone like a close friend; they want someone that can care about them, knows them better than they know themselves and someone they feel will support them. So they tell themselves that this god exists and that they need him/them in their lives. As a result, I think these people use religion as a sort of crutch to waddle around because they're too afraid they'll face-plant into the concrete and can't stand back up without it. Something like that anyways.

Yes, it's a complete abrogation of responsibility. You can merely substitute "praying" for "working towards a goal" and you're good to go. No sweat.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
