All religion is based on fear of death.

Fear, yes, fear of death, not all....
I would agree with the above post

I think fear is whats used to get people to adhere to a specific religion.

Religion as a practice, globally, though is based on the idea of rules that ensure the survival of a civilization. The laws set into place prevent behaviour that is detrimental to continued survival of a group. If everyone raped, killed, stole, and didn't breed properly, we would have a hard time not going extinct. This especially when populations were small.

The salvation and damnation was indoctrinated into the psyche of the masses as that final deterrant to sway us into obediance of these, now commonsense, parameters that greatly enhance  the survival of a species.
