To lead a pleasurable life is to generally feel pleasure regularly. Pleasure is brought on by either sensory pleasure in the moment, or by imagining pleasurable future events or states of being and having hope that they will come to pass. For this reason, religion is the ultimate comfort and ultimate pleasure. In any time of adversity, it lends one comfort by way of allowing one to take solace in an absolute future, one that is absolutely ensured, and absolutely pleasurable. Even the finitude and tragedy of life itself can be born upon ones shoulders with such a crutch. As such, there can be no replacement for faith.
