mythical menace

A strange thought occured to me:

What if religion is a form of microevolution on the scale of the homosapien mind?  What if, religious ideas existed so that mankind could sort out its differences, and a particular group with a particular faith somehow became victorious and dispensed with other religions and peoples by way of bloodshed (like the Inquisition)?  Or consider that the ideas and strengths of man in the realm of mathematics and science and reasoning are the last or foremost indicators of change.... somehow, a radical idea will come along that polarizes human thought or action to an extent where survival of the fittest becomes imminent (global destruction by nuclear warfare).

Does anyone else entertain the thought that a belief or faith, while merely sustaining the psyche, is also a form of evolution in action?
