Since the Middle Ages, with the trade in indulgences. It is not surprising that in the 21st century, with free access to information, with freedom of communication and exchange of opinions, people begin to open their eyes and they remove from their lives that which does not bring any benefit.

It brings the same benefits that faith in a 'higher power' does; belonging to a group, a narrative of centrality and self-worth, a greater purpose to the cosmos suggesting death is not the end of the ego.
